Towards an Active Nation
New Sport England strategy ‘Towards an Active Nation’ triples investment to tackle inactivity, £250 million over four years as part of new strategy to support grassroots sport.
More than one in four people in England 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.
SPORTING EQUALS CEO LOOKS FORWARD TO HELP BUILD AN ACTIVE NATION
