In December 2015 the Government published Sporting Future: A New Strategy for an Active Nation.
It sets a bold and ambitious direction for sport policy which has been widely welcomed. It looks beyond simple participation to how sport changes lives and becomes a force for social good.
At its heart are five outcomes: physicalwellbeing, mental wellbeing, individual development, social and community development, and economic development.
Putting this policy into practice to achieve these outcomes will mean significant change for Sport England and for our partners.
