Planning the Future of Sport and Physical Activity in England

Sport England is moving towards a dynamic new strategy for sport and physical activity in the coming years.

In this podcast Gareth Dix welcomes two special guests to talk about the direction of travel and how it will impact nationally and more specifically in Devon.

Gareth is joined by Ed Sandham, Sport England’s Lead for Active Partnerships and Jo Colin, Active Devon’s Director of Strategic Relationships.

This informative podcast reinforces the importance of connecting national policy to the real work in localities such as Devon. The conversation covers inequality and the role sport and physical activity can play. It also highlights the shared purpose that Sport England has with local networks for a healthier active nation.

There are reflections on leadership, the value of trust and empathy, and how ‘seeking to understand’ has so much significance in working with vulnerable groups. The podcast finishes with ways to comment and influence the future of sport and physical activity in England through the emerging strategy.
