Active Scotland Delivery Plan

ISBN: 9781787810143

This Delivery Plan sets out the range of actions that the Scottish Government and our partners are undertaking, working together to encourage and support people in Scotland to be more active, more often.

Executive Summary

The Active Scotland Delivery Plan outlines the actions that the Scottish Government and a wide range of partner organisations will take to support and enable people in Scotland to be more physically active.

Our work to date in developing and working to implement the Active Scotland Outcomes Framework means that Scotland is particularly well-placed to meet the challenges set out in the World Health Organization’s Global Action Plan on Physical Activity. This Delivery Plan sets out how the actions to achieve our shared outcomes aligns with the objectives set out in the WHO Global Action Plan.

Our outcomes approach and the range of specific actions set out in this Delivery Plan draw on the growing body of international evidence on what works in practice to get people active. This tells us that there is no single solution to increasing physical activity, but multiple concurrent approaches are needed.
