Sport England

We’re here to increase the number of people doing sport and activity – no matter what their background, ability or age. From traditional team sports to activities like walking or going to the gym – we’re building an active nation that caters for everyone. Our vision is that everyone in England, regardless of age, background or ability, feels able to take part in sport or activity. Some might be fit and talented, but others won’t be so confiden

 We will contribute to the government's strategy by working to:

Increase the number of people in England taking part in sport and activity and decrease the number of people who are physically inactive

Increase the proportion of young people (11-18) who have a positive attitude to sport and being active

Make sure public facilities are used fully and effectively to get maximum use from communities

Increase the number of children who are physically literate – i.e. confident and competent in sport and activity

Increase the number of adults using the great outdoors for exercise and wellbeing

Contribute to UK and home nation performance in major sporting events at home and abroad (through our various projects to support talented individuals)

Increase investment in sport from sources outside the public sector

Increase the number of people volunteering in sport at least twice in the last year

Make sure volunteers are from a wider range of backgrounds and lifestyles to ensure this group represents society as a whole
