Participation in sport brings so many benefits; it improves physical and mental health, provides social interaction, breaks down barriers and brings people together.
The challenge of increasing the numbers of people engaged in sport – and sustaining their participation – extends across all generations. From the youngster enjoying a fun first positive experience of games to older generation keeping active and finding camaraderie through walking football. With participation
We go beyond football to encourage more people to play sport and be more active on a regular basis. We are committed to increasing both the number and quality of sports coaches working in schools and across our organisations, as well as ensuring that these coaches have the skills to engage with all sections of our communities.
