Sport England


Sport England is an organisation committed to helping people and communities across the country create sporting habits for life.  They are working to increase the number of people who play sport regularly and to make lives better through the medium of sport.  This means investing in organisations and projects that will get more people playing sport and creating opportunities for people to excel at their chosen sport.

Over 15 million people play sport once a week, every week, but Sport England's aim is to increase this number, and they are particularly focused on getting more 14-25-year-olds and disabled people playing sport once a week.

Sport England's vision is that everyone in England, regardless of age, background or ability, feels able to take part in sport or activity. Some might be fit and talented, but others may not be so confident.

They aim to contribute to the government's strategy by working to:

  • Increase the number of people in England taking part in sport and activity and decrease the number of people who are physically inactive
  • Increase the proportion of young people (11-18) who have a positive attitude to sport and being active
  • Make sure public facilities are used fully and effectively to get maximum use from communities
  • Increase the number of children who are physically literate – i.e. confident and competent in sport and activity
  • Increase the number of adults using the great outdoors for exercise and wellbeing
  • Contribute to UK and home nation performance in major sporting events at home and abroad (through our various projects to support talented individuals)
  • Increase investment in sport from sources outside the public sector
  • Increase the number of people volunteering in sport at least twice in the last year
  • Make sure volunteers are from a wider range of backgrounds and lifestyles to ensure this group represents society as a whole
