The legacy of the Olympic and Paralympic games: tackling physical inactivity


MPs debated physical inactivity for the first time in parliament last month following the launch of UKactive’s ‘Steps to solving inactivity report’. This policy briefing summarises the findings of this report, highlights examples of effective practice and explores the recommendations for local authorities before commenting on the response to the report by MPs and other bodies.

This briefing is particularly relevant for local authorities, particularly officers and members concerned with public health, leisure and sport, planning and equalities and the sports activity sector.
