Understanding and addressing inequalities in physical activity

Public Health England has published new guidance for addressing inequalities in physical activity

With inequalities heightened due to Covid-19, this is an important piece of work that highlights the enablers, barriers and opportunities to consider to be more inclusive.

This guidance can be used by local level practitioners and commissioners to begin tackling inequalities in physical activity across and within protected characteristic groups. It presents the findings of a review, analysis and research aimed at understanding the enablers, barriers and opportunities for increasing physical activity across inequality groups.

Three major themes are identified as considerations for action by practitioners and commissioners:
  • enablers, barriers, and identifying opportunity
  • community consultation, engagement, and partnership
  • adopting a holistic approach for protected characteristics and intersectionality

Download the document (pdf format, 211 pages) which concludes with a full set of recommendations for commissioners and practitioners to consider when designing services and interventions locally.
