Wellbeing

How we are achieving our mission to improve the wellbeing of all children and young people through the power of PE and school sport
Our Impact - Wellbeing

In the 2015/16 academic year to date (Sep-Mar) the Youth Sport Trust's impact in this area has been:

  • At the start of Inclusive Futures, volunteers had lower wellbeing than the national average but after the project, volunteers reported higher wellbeing than the national average
  • 78% of girl leaders experienced increased happiness as a result of attending the Girls Active Camp
  • The PE2020 project’s initial findings confirm young people who report a higher level of wellbeing are more likely to report higher levels of physical activity, enjoyment of exercise & perceived life skills
  • Children spoke more positively about their PE experiences and they were observed enjoying PE more when their movement improved, as a result of using a Start to Move approach 
  • "I feel like I’ve really come out of my shell, my confidence used to be so low and I wasn’t a big person for speaking in front of people but now I can get up and speak in front of people.  I’m school captain and I had to get up and speak in front of everybody’s parents... and without joining Inclusive Futures programme, I don’t think I’d have been able to do it". Inclusive Futures Volunteer, Glasgow
