Sports and physical activity strategy

Physical activity plays a key role in the health and wellbeing of our community. This impacts on wider agendas such as community safety, social cohesion and the climate emergency. 

In line with our regional and national partners such as Active Surrey and Sport England, the Council has created a physical activity strategy that highlights priority areas for the next five years.

The strategy is called Moving Forward. We aim to create an environment where all Surrey Heath residents have the opportunity to participate in physical activity.

Six key themes have been identified which will form the pillars of Moving Forward. These are:

  • Recover and reinvent
  • Connecting communities
  • Making activity accessible
  • Stronger connections with health and wellbeing
  • Active environments
  • Children and young people

Within each theme of the strategy are objectives for the current year. This is followed by a number of wider goals that will be achieved over the duration of the strategy period. Each January the objectives will be reviewed and a new action plan will be set for the next year.

Achieving the full range of targets in the strategy will only be possible by collaborating with our partners and empowering local communities to deliver physical activity themselves.
