The sport and recreation sector aims to encourage everyone to be active - by taking part, watching, volunteering or working within the sector.
The 2017 Sports Summit in association with Perkins Slade will be talking about some of the hurdles we face in getting the nation active. We will be asking if we are actively embracing diversity, are we safe and inclusive so that everyone is encouraged to be more active, and do we have the right skills in place and the desire to change?
