The Department of Health are a government funded department that oversees the health and lifestyle infrastructure across the UK. We approached the South Wests regional office with our Sports Heroes programme for funding and their backing, they granted us both and we were able to produce this animation as part of a larger production which included key interviews and demonstrations of the Sports Heroes package.
