Support for tourism infrastructure is vital, and investment in culture is a proven regeneration tool.

A vibrant local sports scene improves public health, economic development and community cohesion. We are helping councils build a lasting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

We are helping councils tackle their challenges through:

  • securing continued support for the Future Libraries programme
  • helping councils to realise a 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy that delivers wider benefits for the whole country
  • supporting councils who are pioneering new and more efficient ways of delivering heritage services and share the lessons widely
  • promoting digital inclusion and supporting the superfast broadband pilot areas.
