We know that those who do the least activity stand to gain the most, even if they only do a little bit more. That’s why tackling inactivity is a key part of our Uniting the Movement strategy.
We also know that the take-up of sport and physical activity varies and one of the biggest differences we see in our Active Lives survey results is between socio-economic groups.
Defining socio-economic status can be complicated, but in general we can see that the more affluent parts of our society are nearly twice as likely to be active than those from more disadvantaged communities.
That's why we established the Tackling Inactivity and Economic Disadvantage fund, which is supporting 35 projects via £4.5 million of National Lottery money.
