Sport England Launch New 5 Year Strategy – ‘Towards an Active Nation’
Sport England will spend £250 million to combat inactivity as part of their new five-year strategy.
More than one in four people in England (28 per cent) do less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week. But research shows that those who do the least activity stand to benefit the most, even if it’s just small changes like gentle jogging, swimming or playing rounders in the park.
As well as continuing to support people who already play sport, there will be a much greater emphasis on groups who are typically much less active such as women, disabled people and those from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
