A New Physical Activity and Sport Strategy for Edinburgh

We would like to invite you to help us to improve access to physical activity and sport opportunities across Edinburgh, by completing our short questionnaire to share your thoughts and views.

Our questionnaire and consultation process has gone live and will run until the 26 June 2024 and we would very much value your support and involvement in the process, to help us shape the new Physical Activity and Sport Strategy for Edinburgh.  

To see the draft strategy and to give us your views, please visit the Physical Activity and Sport Strategy for Edinburgh page on the Consultation and Engagement Hub. 

Our vision is to create an Edinburgh where everyone enjoys the benefits of an active life. Because we know that the more active we are, the healthier we become both physically and mentally, the stronger our communities and the more inclusive our city. We want to understand your experiences of physical activity and sport and hear your views on the draft strategy and whether you think our priorities are the right ones for the city.


Although Edinburgh is a city that enjoys a wealth of opportunities to participate in physical activity and sport, we know that there are still barriers which prevent people from taking part. We want to work together to identify and remove those barriers, to give equal access for all and make it easier for people to participate. And we need your opinions and expertise to strengthen the strategy and make sure we are tackling the priorities that will make the most difference.

The feedback we receive will be used to shape the final version of the strategy, so we would ask that you get involved by sharing your experiences through completion of the online questionnaire (it should take approximately 15 minutes to complete), or by completing a paper questionnaire at the local library, or by coming along to one of our in-person consultation events (details to follow).

If you have any questions about the process or about the current service, then please contact us at PA&SportStrategy@edinburgh.gov.uk  

Thank you for your support!
