Headlines

Unit Outcome and Unit Cost Analyses
• Change4Life Sports Clubs have a cost of £305 for every new child meeting CMO physical activity guidelines, for which cost an additional
0.2 children were lifted out of inactivity and a further 2.2 children were lifted out of low activity, with each of these children experiencing an
average increase in reported wellbeing and individual development outcomes of 71%.
• In comparison to the control condition counterfactual, Change4Life Sports Clubs delivered the following NET outcomes per £1,000 of
expenditure:
• 41 participants
• 0.8 sustained clubs
• 3.9 Young Leaders
• 2.8 new children meeting CMO physical activity guidelines
• 8.4 children lifted out of low activity
• 1.3 children lifted out of inactivity
• 0.1 children newly eating 5-a-day
• 0.6 children reporting increased wellbeing and individual development outcomes
• 5.1 children starting with low activity levels reporting increased wellbeing and individual development outcomes.

Quality Adjusted Life Year (QALY) Analysis
• The cost per QALY generated for the GROSS outcomes of Change4Life Sports Clubs is £3,385 (range:£3,036 to £3,806).
• In comparison to the control condition counterfactual, the cost per QALY generated for the NET outcomes of Change4Life Sports Clubs is
£3,791 (range: £3,413 to £4,245).
• The cost per QALY generated for Change4Life Sports Clubs is significantly below NICE’s threshold for value for money per QALY of
£20,000.
• The cost per QALY generated for the GROSS outcomes of Change4Life Sports Clubs compares favourably to GROSS outcomes
estimated for walking buses (£4,008 per QALY), dance classes (£27,570 per QALY), free swimming (£40,462 per QALY) and community
sports (£71,456 per QALY).
• The cost per QALY generated by the NET outcomes of exercise referral interventions in adulthood is approximately five and a half times
greater than that of Change4Life Sports Clubs.

Analysis of Future Health at Ages 13-15
• The Change4Life Sports Clubs cohort are predicted to do around an hour more physical activity per week at ages 13-15 than that
predicted for the control condition counterfactual, and than today’s 13-15 year olds.
• The estimated additional physical activity of the Change4Life Sports Clubs cohort up to ages 13-15 will generate one additional QALY for
every five children that took part in Change4Life Sports Clubs.
• In comparison to the control counterfactual, the cost per QALY generated by the estimated future NET outcomes of Change4Life Sports
Clubs up to ages 13-15 is £120.
• Across the Health Survey for England, the Millennium Cohort Study and the Understanding Society Survey, no data is available to support
a robust estimation of likely health and wellbeing status associated with physical activity levels at ages 13-
