Sport England 10 Year Strategy Launched
This week Sport England launched their strategy for the next 10 years.
The strategy highlights ‘five big issues’ as its focus:
- Recover and reinvent: To help sport and physical activity to recover from the effects of the pandemic and reinventing as a sustainable network of organisations providing opportunities for everyone.
- Connecting communities: Focus on sport and physical activity’s vital role as part of the fabric of the nation.
- Positive experiences for children and young people: An “unrelenting focus” on putting enjoyment at the heart of the experiences of children and young people’s involvement in sport and physical activity.
- Connecting with health and wellbeing: To further strengthen the connections between sport, physical activity, health and wellbeing, so more people can feel the benefits of an active life.
- Active environments: To maximise many of the lessons that the pandemic has brought, identifying Sport England’s role in creating and protecting the places and spaces that make it easier for people to play sport and be active in their local areas.
Uniting the Movement is a very smart way to define Sport England’s vision for the next ten years and how they intend to operate and co-operate.
I am excited about the role that Lincolnshire Sports Forum will have through its partnership with sports clubs and associations across the county. I think the Forum is very well placed as our current strategy will help to launch Sport England’s ambitions across the county.
