How We Influence Policy

We also undertake research and produce reports to evidence the value of sport and recreation and lead public campaigns such as Right to Be Active to build support for change.

In addition, we provide opportunities for members and other stakeholders to come together to discuss policy issues by convening working groups and contribute to external policy groups on matters affecting our members.

We also provide the secretariat to the APPG for Sport. More information about the APPG and its work can be found here.
