The first new sports strategy for England in 13 years has just been published.
This new strategy for sport & physical activity moves beyond merely looking at how many people take part. It will consider what people get out of participating & what more can be done to make a physically active life truly transformative. In the future, funding decisions will be made on the basis of the social good that sport & physical activity can deliver, not simply on the number of participants. They are redefining what success looks like in sport by concentrating on five key outcomes:
- physical wellbeing,
- mental wellbeing,
- individual development,
- social and community development and
- economic development.
The strategy accepts it’s vital to use “behavioural insights” to support young people to find their own way to an active lifestyle, empower them to make healthier, and to make positive lifestyle choices.
