Somerset Physical Activity & Sports Strategy 2021

Somerset Physical Activity & Sports Strategy 2021

Next Steps

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Big Conversation and Virtual Workshops over the last few months. We will now be analysing the output from these to develop a draft strategy, which will include the proposed vision, outcomes, strategic themes, objectives and critical activities. We will be consulting on this draft strategy in early November to gauge support, test and refine it. The final strategy will be launched and published in early 2022.

Being active is so important for our physical and mental fitness, never more so than during a pandemic. In Somerset we still have nearly a quarter of our adult population who are inactive and activity levels for children and young people have also dropped significantly over the past year. Lack of confidence, time pressures, ill health plus a thousand other things can make the decision to be active harder for some than others. We look forward to working with the residents of Somerset and our partners to make decisions easier for people to embed being active as a way of life.
