How we do it

We work in a number of different ways to get more people active through sport and exercise

Sailing Action

Our seven investment programmes for 2016-2021 are:

  • Tackling inactivity – to help the 28 per cent of people in England who don’t do any sport or physical activity
  • Children and young people – to work with children from the age of 5 to increase children’s basic competence and enjoyment
  • Volunteering – focusing on the motivations and needs of the volunteers so that volunteering in sport attracts more people from a wider range of backgrounds
  • Taking sport and activity into the mass market – focusing on the sports and activities that have mass appeal and can get large numbers of people active
  • Supporting sport’s core markets (including talented athletes) – supporting those who already have a strong affinity for sport in a more efficient and sustainable way
  • Local delivery – exploring new ways of working locally by investing in up to 10 specific areas to pilot new, more joined up approaches to getting people active
  • Creating welcoming sports facilities with a new Community Asset Fund, and continuing its successful Strategic Facilities Fund, prioritising multi-sport facilities and, wherever possible, co-locating them with other local services.
