Facilities and planning

It’s vital people have access to high-quality facilities and the area they live is designed in a way that encourages people to get active. We offer advice and support to help those involved in facility management and the planning system to achieve this.

Facilities and planning


We’re committed to ensuring that children and adults can enjoy sport and physical activity safe from harm, abuse, violence, exploitation and neglect. We have a range guidance to help support everyone in the sport sector to safeguard those at risk.


Cost of living

We've collated guidance and research on how the cost of living impacts people's activity levels, how to get people active at a low cost and how facilities and organisations can adapt to keep energy costs down.

National governing bodies

Across England there are many different national governing bodies (NGBs) who have responsibility for managing their specific sport. Here we outline how our expertise helps NGBs across a range of issues, and give information on the sports and governing bodies we recognise.

Grassroots organiser

We know sports clubs and activity groups provide a brilliant structure to get people playing active but that running an organisation can be quite a difficult, and a sometimes thankless, task. Our Buddle website has free guidance, support and learning on all aspects of running a club.

Organisation support

Teachers and schools

Many people’s first memories of taking part in sport are at school, and the experience they have can have a lasting impact on their attitude to physical activity for the rest of their lives. That’s why we offer free training to teachers to help foster a more positive attitude to PE in schools.
