Active Futures

Children and young people in Norfolk will benefit from improved coordination and investment in physical activity, education and sport, thanks to a cross-agency strategy that links together key stakeholders working with young people - Active Futures.

The partners include early years settings, primary and secondary schools, further/higher education institutions, Norfolk County Council Children's Services, Public Health, Active Norfolk, Local Authorities, School Sports Partnerships.

Active Futures outlines a shared vision: "To inspire all young people in Norfolk to realise the benefits of an active lifestyle," to achieve the desired outcome, "Happier, healthier and more successful young people and communities."

This concise and actionable strategy sets out aspirations for all young people in Norfolk and outlines how each setting working with young people can contribute to these aspirations.
