Inquiry into physical activity of children and young people


The National Assembly for Wales’ Health, Social Care and Sport Committee is conducting an inquiry into physical activity of children and young people.

The Committee is calling for evidence about a number of areas, including:

  • The extent to which Welsh Government policies are aimed at whole populations and/or particular groups, and what impact that approach has on addressing health inequalities.
  • Barriers to increasing the levels of physical activity among children in Wales, and examples of good practice in achieving increases in physical activity, and in engagement with hard to reach groups, within Wales, the UK and internationally.
  • Physical activity guidelines and how we benchmark physical fitness in children.
  • Measurement, evaluation and effectiveness of the Welsh Government’s programmes and schemes aimed at promoting physical activity of children.

Deadline for responses: 15 September 2017
