pdf Sport and physical activity strategy 2020 to 2025 (1.48 MB)

The strategy joins a wide group of partners with shared aims to create, improve and share opportunities for sport and physical activity. This helps to make Bristol healthier, resilient and more prosperous.
We used the 2019 physical activity needs assessment and spoke with clubs, schools, and sports organisations to write the strategy. It has: 

  • a set of strategic results we hope to achieve
  • objectives for improvement
  • a measurable action plan

The strategy includes information about:

  • rules and guidelines published by the UK's Chief Medical Officer in September 2019
  • the health and wellbeing of citizens in Bristol
  • physical activity levels in the city

We're going to make a new framework to make sure the strategy works well and achieves its aims. We'll use this to measure how activity changes compared to 2019.
