***CONSULTATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 30 NOVEMBER***

Kent Sport’s Children and Young People team are currently in the process of developing a new strategy, to inform and shape its work going forward from 2021 to 2026. On this page you’ll find a copy of the draft strategy, provisionally named “Helping children and young people to be active every day”, which we would love you to provide feedback on. As a team we may have limited resources, but we are very keen to ensure those resources are spent in the most effective way.

We aim to produce our final strategy by the end of 2020 which will feed into our wider team strategy due to be published in Spring 2021.

This document provides context, including reasons why this is such an important issue, as well as examples of why children and young people (CYP) are not active. It also describes how we intend to work, to address the issue, followed by what we plan to do i.e. what our priorities are and the actions we will take. This will allow you to provide feedback in terms of whether or not we are on the right track, or whether we’ve missed anything.
