'Uniting the movement'  is Sport England's 10 year vision to transform lives and communities through sport and physical activity. 

The strategy aims to create a nation of more equal, inclusive and connected communities. A country where people live happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives. 

Sport England's role is to champion this lifechanging impact, and ensure everyone across the nation can benefit from it. Recognising that we are all part of a much bigger team and we will all need to work together to achieve the ambition. The aim is that everyone has the opportunity, the inspiration and the freedom to get moving.

Sport England will invest in sport and physical activity to make it a normal part of life for everyone in England, regardless of who you are.

There's no quick fix to make this vision a reality. But we know being active is one of the most effective and sustainable ways to achieve it. This is why Sport England exists. The evidence is overwhelming that moving our bodies - through community sport, fitness and physical activity - improves our lives, individually and collectively.

Welcoming the launch of the new strategy Mike Thomas, Director at Active Cornwall said:"We are excited to welcome and support this new 10 year  strategy and we look forward to working with Sport England and local stakeholders to make it a reality. Importantly the strategy recognises that we need to recover  from the biggest crisis in a generation to encourage a vibrant, relevant and sustainable network of organisations providing sport and physical activity opportunities that meet the needs of different people".
