Sport England: Evaluation of Active Ageing and Tackling Inactivity and Economic Disadvantage

Those who do the least physical activity stand to gain the most, even if they only do a little bit more. A key part of Sport England’s strategy is tackling physical inactivity. CFE Research is evaluating two related strands of their work to tackle inactivity: Active Ageing, and Tacking Inactivity and Economic Disadvantage.

CFE is supporting 55 funded projects to capture evidence of impact and learning about what works. We provide Sport England with an interactive dashboard to allow them to explore the evaluation data. Our evaluation also involves an ongoing programme of qualitative research with participants, staff and volunteers, including participant observation of activities and depth interviews.

Findings are presented in a variety of formats including case studies, infographics and a series of short videos. Click here to view an example of a video we created on the impact of activities for people affected by long-term health conditions.
