For any members who were caught up in the festive season, and may have missed the government’s sport strategy. The Department for Culture, Media & Sport published it’s Sporting Future: A New Strategy for an Active Nation
This cross-government strategy will tackle head on the flatlining levels of sport participation and high levels of inactivity in this country. Through this strategy, government is redefining what success in sport means, with a new focus on five key outcomes: physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing, individual development, social and community development and economic development. In future, funding decisions will be made on the basis of the outcomes that sport and physical activity can deliver.
DAA member, The English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) warmly welcomed “Sporting Future” the Government’s “New Strategy for an Active Nation”, which aims to increase the engagement of people who have been less active, including disabled people. Released on 17/12/15, the Strategy follows several months of Government public consultation and EFDS is greatly encouraged by the genuine opportunity it creates for disabled people to be active.
