Sport and physical activity 2024-25

Physical activity is an important part of mental and physical wellbeing. Communities are now facing complex challenges resulting from increased living costs and the impact of COVID-19. The LGA is working with Sport England to support councils to co-create approaches with communities to help tackle health inequalities and encourage participation in the context on financial pressures.
