Local government spends approximately £1 billion per year on sport and leisure - more than 50% of the total resources available to sport. Active Devon works closely with local authorities to help them develop physical activity and sport opportunities in their area.
Local Area Agreements (LAAs) provide a framework for central government and local areas to work in partnership to deliver improved outcomes and better public services for local communities. The physical activity and sport sector is uniquely placed to help deliver outcomes in each of the four blocks of Local Area Agreements and many local authorities have already demonstrated the power of physical activity and sport by ensuring both play an important part in the development of their LAAs.
Physical activity and sport can enrich people’s quality of life, raise self-esteem and confidence and provide enjoyment. But also has a much larger part to play in supporting the delivery of local community priorities.
