Further Information

Intelligent Health Ltd is dedicated to improving the health of communities around the world. We believe a healthy community needs all stakeholders working together to make a difference. That means people, organisations and leaders. Intelligent Health values are; Honest, Passionate about Health, Reliable, Kind and Proactive.

Beat the Street is a key Intelligent Health programme which engages whole communities and gets them moving. The game uses RFID technology where players earn points by tapping RFID cards on physical boxes placed on lamp posts throughout the town or playing area. Beat the Street programmes have been successful both within the UK and across Europe, commissioned by our programme funders, who in the past have included local authorities, NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups and charity partners.

Role Summary
Funded by Sport England and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council we aim to deliver a successful game engaging with thousands of people across the area. Beat the Street is divided into 3 phases; Anticipation, Experience and Sustain. In anticipation phase the Engagement Coordinator will work with key local stakeholders to build the profile of Beat the Street in Stockton-on-Tees and recruit teams from schools and community groups. This will involve attending community events, presenting at parent’s evenings and assemblies, leading occasional walks and championing physical activity to get schools and community groups involved in the initiative. The Engagement Coordinator will also need to work with local voluntary groups, clubs and businesses to get teams signed up and generally raise awareness of the scheme.

Throughout the live phase of the game, the Engagement Coordinator will deliver several community events and competitions to help motivate players, boost participation and recruit new players. You will also need to plan and deliver a launch event, celebration event and prize giving in partnership with the key stakeholders.

During sustain phase, the Engagement Coordinator should have sourced opportunities for players to remain active in their local area, linking with local partners and promoting these through regular newsletters and online platforms. During this time, feedback sessions with community groups and schools should take place to help us evaluate and inform future programmes and interventions.
