Children and Young People

Helping young people to live active lives is critical to creating a happier, healthier and more prosperous London

London Sport are committed to ensuring that young people have the best opportunity to form a positive physical activity habit for life. 

Helping young people to live active lives is critical to creating a happier, healthier and more prosperous London.

That’s why we work with schools, colleges, policymakers, local authorities, teachers and anyone else supporting young people; our role is to advise, inform and create positive change.

Our Children and Young People work:

As part of the School Sport and Activity Action Plan, the Department for Education have invested into a project to support schools to open their sports facilities.

The project aims to improve the understanding of the current landscape as well as the barriers, solutions and success factors linked to school facility usage.

With the nation back in lockdown at the start of 2021, many children and young people will be spending a lot more time at home than under normal circumstances.

To maintain physical activity as a vital part of every child’s day, we’ve collected a series of resources that can support children and young people to be active at home.

The Active Lives Survey for Children and Young People is the survey that measures young people’s involvement in physical activity and sport across the whole country.

The survey looks into the physical activity and sport behaviours of children and provides a world-leading approach to gathering data on how children engage with sport and physical activity.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has launched the capital’s biggest ever community sports fund to help under-served and vulnerable young Londoners to access and enjoy sport and physical activity. 

Go! London will see £19.5m being spent on improving the lives of young Londoners facing physical, social, economic, or educational challenges. 

The PE and sport premium provides primary schools with £320 million of government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets.  

The funding is allocated directly to schools, so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils.
