The Fun Doesn’t Have To Stop!
Thanks to everyone who got involved and made this Active Wellbeing our best ever! We hope you enjoyed the celebrations and plan to continue your healthy habits throughout the year.
There’s loads of brilliant activities throughout the CSSC calendar to help members either try a new sport, improve their skills or perhaps just to keep active. Why not discover your best self and explore CSSC’s range of sports, fitness, games or activities available to members.
A Week In Numbers
We’re so proud of everyone who took part in this year’s Active Wellbeing. You collected more badges, downloaded more packs and made more pledges than ever before. Making this year’s AW the most enjoyable and most inclusive yet:
- 7,000 badges won
- Over 1,200 digipacks downloaded
- 3,600 pledges
- Over 7,000 participants
- More than 50 prizes worth over 10,000
- 70 Departments all over the UK got involved
But, some of our favourite stories weren’t about collecting badges or winning prizes with AW22. It was hearing how people used Active Wellbeing as a springboard to try something new.
Word Gets Around
So many of you got in touch to say you went out for a walk on the first Monday to explore your local area and haven’t stopped exploring since. Some of you have told us how much better you feel for getting in just 20 minutes exercise each day with a simple stretch and walk at lunchtime.
And it’s those of you who contacted us on social media to show us where you’ve been exploring with your loved ones and furry friends, which reminds us how important Active Wellbeing is, to help people move more, have fun and stay active.
By spreading the word and getting hundreds of friends, colleagues, teams and family members involved, it really propelled Active Wellbeing 2022 into the future and made the campaign our best ever.
“After working from home for such a long time, I was looking for something I could do before work to get me going. I pledged to do a before work exercise or mindfulness activity every work day with Active Wellbeing 2022. It got my ball rolling, and in doing so I discovered the classes available on my CSSC account to keep me motivated. I plan to keep up these activities, as I am feeling physically and mentally improved”.

“Pledging to be more active through the Active Wellbeing 2022 program is part of a suite of lifestyle changes I have made over the past few months in an effort to be more fit and healthy. It’s a great initiative to help keep people accountable in their goals while also providing a fun incentive”.
- Tori – UK Statistics Authority
“An ‘Active Wellbeing’ notification appeared in my inbox at the right time as the mid-January slump was starting to take its toll. The nudge to reaffirm my pledges to myself was the drive I needed to take the stairs instead of the lift, and to go for a walk at lunch time instead of sitting in a different chair. I thank the Active Wellbeing team for helping me get through January, which is always a tough month.”
Active Wellbeing 2022 Is Just The Beginning
Celebrating AW22 in January was more than just a great way to help people with their New Year resolutions. It was to make sure we start the year off the right way and to open the doors for much healthier and happier 2022. And that’s where you come in.
