Sport England's CYP Active Lives Survey provides the most comprehensive overview of the sport and physical activity habits of children, aged 5 - 16 in England.
Today’s announcement covers the academic year Sept 22 – July 23 and shows that 45.6% of children & young people are active for at least 60 minutes a day in Greater Manchester, which equates to 188,100.
This means that 224,600 children are not meeting the recommended guidelines of 60 minutes a day.
There has been a small decrease from 12 months ago in those that are active (-3.7%) but overall still shows recovery to pre-pandemic levels (academic year 2018-19).
Please click here for more interpretation of the GM data, we will provide more detail of the results at a Greater Manchester level in due course.
Sport England’s national report can be found on their website.
Prior to the training, many non-medical/community-facing staff didn't feel confident in discussing movement and physical activity within their work.
Across England, sports clubs and organisations are being supported by a new network of Sport Welfare Officers. They have been recruited by Active Partnerships and funded by Sport England through an investment of National Lottery money.
