This report by the Sport for Development Coalition, Mind, Loughborough University and Edge Hill University sets out clear recommendations for future policy and practice surrounding physical activity and mental health. The report explores how physical activity, sport and sport for development can transform lives after COVID-19.

Recommendations include the introduction of a cross-government public mental health strategy, recognising the promotion of movement through physical activity and sport for development for mental health. Other recommendations include the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities taking a strategic lead with DCMS and other partners (including the UK sports councils and Mind) in coordinating the delivery of movement opportunities for positive mental health outcomes whilst tackling deep-seated social and health inequalities.
