Dundee Physical Activity Strategy

Welcome to the Physical Activity Strategy for Dundee. The strategic drivers for the Dundee Strategy originated from the Active Scotland Framework, at national level, and the Local Community Plan outcomes for Dundee. The physical activity priorities for the City were subsequently identified , following the review of the previous Sport & Physical Activity Strategy (2010-2015) and a series of consultative engagements with professional agencies and the general public.

The strategy consists of 4 strategic frameworks: Active Living; Dance; Play; and Sport & Recreation. Together they identify the key issues for all Physical Activity in Dundee. Each framework has a governance group responsible for the delivery, monitoring and reporting of progress to the Physical Activity Leadership Group which is responsible for collation and reporting of progress and outcomes to partners and the Dundee Partnership.

The Dundee Physical Activity Strategy, brings together the essential outcomes and desired ambitions of the partners involved in the provision of physical activities in the City, along with the public’ aspirations. It sets out the priorities for the City based on demographics, population trends and statistics and provides an inspiring picture of what the city can be and what can be achieved through physical activity of all kinds.

Dundee aspires to be “An Active City with Active People” which can only be achieved through appropriate investment, commitment and unity. The Dundee Partnership and the City’s physical activity sector believes this strategy, with its four complementary frameworks, provides the platform with which this can be achieved.

The Physical Activity Strategy and all associated Frameworks have been approved by all key agencies responsible for the creation and implementation of the documents. Formal endorsement of the Strategy and Frameworks is to be sought from Dundee Partnership on 7 December 2017.
