Joining forces on five big issues
The ambitions at the heart of Uniting the Movement, and all the choices we’ve made, are the result of a process that’s involved thousands of people and hundreds of organisations.
In these many conversations, whether they’ve happened in the Houses of Parliament, in a community hall or online, the same issues and opportunities have emerged. It’s this shared sense of what matters to us all that are our five ‘big issues’.
These are the things that will need people to work together to address. They’re some of the biggest challenges to an active nation over the next decade and are also the greatest opportunities to make a lasting difference.
Each big issue is where we see the greatest potential for preventing and tackling inequalities in sport and physical activity. Each one is a building block that, on its own, would make a difference, but together, could change things profoundly.
We’re not starting from scratch here. But we’re now ramping up our momentum and ambition. Building on the work that we, and many others, have already begun, we’ll work over the next decade on these big issues:
Recover and reinvent
Recovering from the biggest crisis in a generation and reinventing as a vibrant, relevant and sustainable network of organisations providing sport and physical activity opportunities that meet the needs of different people.
Focusing on sport and physical activity’s ability to make better places to live and bring people together.
Positive experiences for children and young people
Unrelenting focus on positive experiences for all children and young people as the foundations for a long and healthy life.
Connecting with health and wellbeing
Strengthening the connections between sport, physical activity, health and wellbeing, so more people can feel the benefits of, and advocate for, an active life.
Creating and protecting the places and spaces that make it easier for people to be active.
