The aim of the Physical Recreation and Sport Strategy is to help organisations involved in physical recreation and sport to move in a common direction.
The Council has adopted a leadership role and tried to bring together the perspectives of the many different organisations involved in physical recreation and sport into one comprehensive strategy.
The case for increasing participation in physical recreation and sport is compelling. Positive participation in physical recreation and sport means people will be in better health and reduce health care costs. It is a key element in human development at all ages and helps to build strong families and communities. Furthermore it generates economic benefits and very importantly contributes to people’s quality of life.
