The Active Scotland Development Group was established in November 2018. 

The remit of the Group is to:

  • advise on development of policy directly or indirectly related to physical activity in line with up to date evidence
  • promote key messages to the wider stakeholder community
  • drive forward translation of national aspirations to local delivery

The Group meets quarterly and is chaired by Professor Nanette Mutrie, head of the Physical Activity for Health Research Centre at Edinburgh University.
