In a recent speech Andrew Lansley (Secretary of State for Health) made it clear that the Change4Life campaign will NOT be coming to an end, contrary to rumours that have been flying around. The quote from him is pasted in below, and you can read more on the Change4Life supporters newsletter or the full transcript of his speech.
“Some of you may have seen recent press coverage suggested that the Change4Life campaign is to be brought to cease. I wanted to reassure you that there are no plans to cease the Change4Life campaign. However, I did make clear in the speech that given the new financial climate I intend to pursue a new approach to the campaign – where investment by the taxpayer will be progressively scaled back and the commercial sector and charities are asked to provide more of the necessary direct investment in Change4Life to sustain the initiative.” Andrew Lansley.
