About Go4Fun®

What does Go4Fun involve?

Free support for children and families

Go4Fun is for NSW children aged 7 to 13 years who are looking for support with healthy eating and physical activity. Go4Fun is a fun way to learn more about healthier living and overall wellbeing. The program focuses on making lifestyle changes as a family, encourages healthy eating habits and physical activity, and improves self-esteem in kids. Best of all, it’s completely free.

Just two hours a week, during school terms

Go4Fun takes place during school terms, usually after school. It’s run by qualified health professionals, including dietitians and exercise physiologists.

Sessions run once a week for two hours, over a ten-week period. In the first hour, children and adults learn about healthy eating for the whole family. In the second hour, children enjoy game-based activities, while the adults discuss how to work on better health at home.

As Go4Fun is a family focused program, a parent or carer must come to every session, but don’t worry if you can’t make it. You can ask grandparents, aunts, uncles or adult siblings to stand in.

Make lifestyle changes as a family

Since we launched Go4Fun in Australia in 2011, more than 13,000 families have participated in the program.

There are now three versions of the program available:

Each child receives a Go4Fun welcome pack, and at the end of the program you’ll receive a report showing all the great changes your child has made to their health.
