HPLS are working in partnership with the Southampton Police Club Trust Fund and the Force Wellbeing Team to support this years global challenge for Hantspol staff to get involved with. The Global Challenge is a great way for you to be a part of a team to compete in an interactive worldwide fitness programme for free. 

You can register for the Global Challenge via the force intranet HERE
or just put 'Global Challenge' in the search bar from a Hantspol PC

In conjunction with the Southampton Police Club Trust Fund we are helping staff and members to enhance their experience by providing a grant towards an upgraded quality wearable fitness tracker over the basic pedometer supplied by Virgin Pulse. This can then provide a long term piece of kit for everyday health and activity monitoring.

If you would like to apply for this grant you will need to have registered as part of a team of 7 under the rules of the Global Challenge and then complete the grant form.  A grant of up to 50% of the purchase price of a fitness tracker (Maximum grant is £100) will be made for applicants who are members of HPLS. Non members can also apply however the grant will be a maximum of £50 which is 25% of purchase price and is the SPCTF part of the grant. A limited amount of funding is available for this initiative and grants will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Do not apply before purchase.

Important note - This grant is for supporting a staff member to purchase a device for their personal use only. Please ensure that any application is being made strictly on the basis of that condition and not in circumstances where any abuse of this grant may be suspected.

What fitness tracker should I buy?
There are hundreds on the market now so you won't be stuck for choice. However you should choose one that will work with the Pulse GC software app. These include Garmin, Fitbit, Jawbone, Polar, Withings and Apple. Please do your research and make sure the model you choose will do what you want it to. We strongly suggest that sleep monitoring is included in the spec of your tracker as sleep is a wellbeing topic that the force will be focusing on in the months to come.  Price compare to get the right price and read reviews to see what people think about the one you want.  If in doubt please ask!
