Sport England has pledged afresh to deliver on the next part of its 10-year strategy, Uniting the Movement. The organisation is targeting its effort and investment toward the levelling up agenda put forth at the last Conservative conference.
The focus will be to ‘disproportionately’ target people and communities that most need to be active and improving their accessibility to physical activity. The current pledges are covered in the new implementation plan covering the first three years of its 10-year strategy.
The five major areas identified by Sport England for preventing and tackling inequalities in sport and physical activity are the following:
- Recovering and reinventing following the pandemic
- Connecting Communities
- Providing positive experiences for children
- Connecting health and wellbeing
- Creating active environments
CEO of Sport England, Tim Hollingsworth said:
“The plan also sets out what Sport England’s role in this process will be and offers a roadmap to tackling inequalities and ensuring everyone – regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity or background – can enjoy the benefits of playing sport and living an active life.”
