Our Towards an Active Black Country Strategic Framework was produced at a time of significant strategic and policy change which has determined its scope of work and the priorities. Sport England outlined their vision to tackle inactivity across the country. To achieve this, the Sport and Physical Activity sector needs to work with a broader range of partners to meet social, health and economic priorities.
The Black Country is characterised by a unique set of socio economic challenges which sets it apart from the rest of England with high levels of unemployment and health inequalities. There is a clear link between the social determinants of health and participation in sport and physical activity. The ‘Towards An Active Black Country’ Strategic Framework features a ‘call to action’ that will unite stakeholders and partners in finding a common purpose to address the inequalities and challenges the Black Country region faces.
