Imagine a nation of more equal, inclusive and connected communities. A country where people live happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives.
There’s no quick fix to make this vision a reality. But we know being active is one of the most effective and sustainable ways to achieve it. This is why Sport England exists.
The evidence is overwhelming that moving our bodies – through community sport, fitness and physical activity – improves our lives, individually and collectively.
From better mental and physical health, to greater career opportunities and social cohesion, movement benefits us from the day we’re born through to old age. And if young people are able to have positive experiences of getting active, it can help build the foundations for an active life.
