The Joy of Moving project is a national school-based educational project for children aged between 9-10. The initiative, which has been developed in partnership with the English Football League Trust and Ferrero, is run across three London boroughs.

The programme encourages physical activity, promotes nutritional education and builds awareness of the importance of a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
