Active people, healthy places

The aim of this report is to share good practice and help decision-makers consider how their council can deliver on this agenda in the best way for local people and communities.


Local sport, leisure and physical activity services can help people to live longer, healthier and happier lives. This makes them fundamental to achieving councils’ aspirations for the wellbeing of their communities.

Councils have a critical local leadership role for sport and physical activity in their places. In the current economic climate, and in the face of national challenges such as high levels of obesity and inactivity and an ageing population, it is more important than ever that councils and their delivery partners demonstrate strong evidence of impact, value for money and service excellence.
