Event Summary

The Government recently launched Get Active: a strategy for the future of sport and physical activity. The vision is to build a healthier nation, drive participation in sport,  improve facilities, and build sustainability and integrity in the sector.

Join your colleagues from across the country at Westminster Insight’s Sport Strategy Conference, as we focus on harnessing the positive power of sport and physical activity and achieving access for all.

You will hear from key stakeholders including DCMS, Sport England and Youth Sport, governing bodies, leading organisations, and experts on their plans to invest in facilities and infrastructure and achieve better social, health and economic outcomes.  Learn how to make best use of the £400 million funds available for grassroots organisations.

What can we do to narrow the activity gap? Hear from Access Sport and Active Partnerships on how to create place-based approaches to harness the benefits of sport and reduce inequalities across health, employment and attainment. Join us to hear from community-based organisations on how to encourage underrepresented groups to adopt a safe and active lifestyle and improve outcomes for children and young people through sport.

We will dive into the most pressing sport integrity challenges, including safeguarding, mental health, good governance, complaint handling and dispute resolution.

We will focus on making sport more sustainable, both in terms of financial governance and and environmental sustainability.

Network with peers from across the sport sector, drive wider participation and improve outcomes for all.
