We are now one year into the life cycle of the Youth Sport Trust's Strategic Plan, which sets out our priorities from 2013-18. To mark our progress in achieving our aims, we have produced this infographic, which illustrates our success in improving the life chances of young people across the country.

2013/14 has been a year of change for PE and school sport - positive change that has enhanced our mission. The Youth Sport Trust has continued to build our delivery reputation, our position in the sporting landscapeand our influence and reach. We have enhanced our working culture - staying true to our values and securing industry-recognised standards, such as Investors in People, ISO 9001 and improving our infrastructure by implementing an award-winning CRM system.

Over recent years, PE and school sport has experienced significant challenges, with growing pressures on the teaching profession, curriculum time and funding. We are here to support schools through these challenges and are now uniquely positioned within the education sector, demonstrated by the considerable growth in our Membership scheme.

We have only been able to achieve this with support from a range of partners, and welcome your feedback on our progress to date in working towards the challenging ambitions we have set ourselves in our Strategic Plan.
