Sport England opens consultation on its new sports strategy

Sport England opens its consultation process on a new sports strategy.

The Government, led by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has recently published ‘Sporting Future: A new strategy for an Active Nation’.

Sporting Future was based on a very recent and wide-ranging consultation carried out by the Government, and set out a clear framework for what needs to be achieved.

The strategy places an emphasis on engaging more people from every background regularly and meaningfully in sport and physical activity, through taking part and also through volunteering in and experiencing live sport.

There is a focus on groups who are currently under-represented in sport and physical activity, including women, disabled people, those in lower socio-economic groups and older people.

Sport England is now working on its own strategy which will help deliver the relevant Key Performance Indicators and in turn contribute to the delivery of the outcomes set by the Government. As part of this, Sport England is now undertaking an online consultation focusing on some of the specific issues that it will need to tackle in its own new strategy.

Cerebral Palsy Sport will be contributing to the new consultation process by attending consultation events as well as completing the survey.
