The Youth Sport Trust is working to create a future where every child enjoys the life-changing benefits of play and sport. We want to increase levels of physical activity to develop healthier and happier children and young people. Our activity includes engagement with government, politicians, other charities, think tanks and more to develop a policy climate in which more children are empowered to be physically active.

On this page, you will discover how we are working to influence the political agenda and ensure children and young people, and their priorities, are given a voice. You will also find our thoughts on wider activity from across the sector, and our analysis of what it all means.

To learn more about our advocacy work, please contact Steve Clapperton, Head of Policy & Public Affairs, at [email protected].
