Physical Activity Policy Review


To evaluate progress to date in implementing the National Physical Activity Strategy Lets Make Scotland More Active (external link) and to recommend priorities for action within the strategy in the next five years.

Phase 1 (June-Sept 2008)

This phase focused on gathering information to inform progress with the strategy´s implementation and assessing changes in key physical activity outcomes.

Phase 2 (Sept-Dec 2008)

The key focus of Phase 2 of the review was to meet with key local and national groups and organisations via regional events, in order to:

  • evaluate the picture of progress and change,
  • to reflect on areas of success/challenge and lessons learned and
  • to agree key priorities for the future

Next Steps

The review group reported in December 2008. Findings of the review (2009)were launched at the 2009 Physical Activity Health Alliance (PAHA) conference.
An update to review Physical Activity targets was released when new Scottish Health Survey Data was published in Autumn 2009.

More information will be posted here and on thePhysical Alliance website (external link) as it is available.
