Less than one in five young people (between the ages of 5-15) are moving for 60 minutes every day. It’s important to build positive attitudes around physical activity early in life to act as the foundation for a healthy life.

Here you will find the latest research related to the physical activity and sport levels, motivations and barriers of children and young people.
Walking, cycling and multi-modal forms of active travel can significantly contribute to meeting the recommended levels of physical activity. This section explores some of the evidence in more detail.
