Draft sport and physical activity strategy 2019-2022

A draft sport and physical activity strategy has been created with the help of local community groups, sports clubs and other agencies involved in the support and delivery of sport and physical activity in Southwark. At the heart of this document is making a positive difference to residents through the delivery of sport and physical activity.

We want to know what you think about the draft strategy and have created a questionnaire on the council consultation hub which will be open until 12 February 2019.

The draft strategy document can be found by clicking here (pdf, 687kb).
