From traditional team sports to activities like walking or going to the gym – we’re building an active nation that caters for everyone. In May 2016 we launched our current strategy and outlined the work we will do between 2017 and 2021 to increase the number of people getting active. It’s our response to the Government’s Sporting Future Open in a new window strategy, which was published in December 2015. Our vision is that everyone in England, regardless of age, background or ability, feels able to take part in sport or activity. Some might be fit and talented, but others won’t be so confident.
