ukactive consultation looking to shape policy on children’s physical activity

By Tom Walker    20 Feb 2018
Fit and healthy students stand to live higher quality, longer and more active lives

A consultation launched earlier today by not-for-profit health body ukactive will look to shape future policy for children’s sport and physical activity in the UK.

The consultation will seek written evidence from anyone involved in children’s fitness – from health experts, activity providers, government stakeholders and education professionals to parents and children themselves – and chart the way physical activity could be better delivered across the nation.

The responses will feed into a new report – to be published at ukactive’s National Summit in September – which will offer a wide-lens view of the opportunities to improve children’s health.

Launching the consultation at the 2018 Kids CEO Forum today (20 February) at City Academy Birmingham, ukactive chair Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson called for submissions from across the children’s activity sector.

“Children’s health is key to their happiness and wellbeing, and healthy children are more likely to grow into the healthy, productive adults our society needs,” Baroness Grey-Thompson said.

“It takes a whole community to raise a child and that is why ukactive needs your help to build the evidence base and shape the physical activity landscape for young people.

“By sharing your success stories from our playgrounds, activity centres and communities, you will be telling the UK – and those operating in the corridors of power – what really works for our kids.”

She added that she hoped the new report will have the same effect as the publication of Generation Inactive had in 2015.

The ground-breaking report laid bare the physical inactivity crisis facing Britain’s children. ukactive’s findings and recommendations led the debate in the media and Westminster, generating momentum behind the children’s activity agenda.

“Ukactive’s Generation Inactive report provided a stark wake-up call for anyone who cares about our children’s health, and our next report will take us from the playground to policy,” she said.

Members and stakeholders will be contacted with details of the submission process, which is set to open on 5 March.
