Sporting Future - Second Annual Report

Sporting Future set out a new Government vision to redefine what success looks like in sport by concentrating on five key outcomes—physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing, individual development, social and community development and economic development.

Click to download the second annual report on the strategy, published on 31 Jan 2018, which sets out the progress that has been made in the past year, and focuses on ten key themes and areas of progress:
  • Cross-government working
  • Change in participation approach
  • Sports governance
  • Anti-doping
  • Duty of care, safeguarding and mental health
  • Major events: past, present and future
  • Safe stadia, accessibility, fan engagement and infrastructure
  • The sporting workforce
  • Elite sport
  • Sporting economy
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Tracey Crouch, said:

"We have continued to build on the significant progress achieved in the first year of the strategy and have continued to embed, and invest in sport and physical activity on the basis of, the five outcomes. On mental wellbeing, for example, we are working closely with the Department of Health and Social Care to explore how elite and professional sport can improve its offer of mental health support. We are also building on Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson’s duty of care report to ensure that sport takes its responsibilities to all participants seriously, whether that be elite athletes or those at the grassroots.

"Investment in sport and physical activity continues to be focused on the five key outcomes. Funding has been opened up to organisations which can demonstrate how they will consistently deliver some or all of those shared goals, with a strong emphasis on tackling inactivity and engaging underrepresented groups.

"We want to make sure absolutely everyone can benefit from the power of sport and I am grateful to all those across Government and the sport and physical activity sector who are working to make the ambition of Sporting Future a reality."
