Enhancing participation, sport and physical activity

The major focus of current funding in the sport and active recreation program area is to build a sport and active recreation sector that has healthy policies and environments and strong communities and organisations with a particular focus on increasing the physical activity levels of those who have the lowest rates of participation - people with disabilities and those from low socio-economic, Indigenous and new arrival communities. As identified, one of the four targeted population groups is that of new arrival communities. This research will provide significant knowledge to the sector regarding how to engage a range of population groups within this target group.
