New ‘Moving For Mental Health' Report A joint report and policy brief from the Sport for Development Coalition and Mind has recommended initiating a new cross-Government strategy to strengthen the use of physical activity and sport to support mental health and wellbeing following the Covid-19 pandemic. As a member of the Sport for Development Coalition (a movement of organisations working to maximise the positive social impact of sport and physical activity) Access Sport submitted evidence gathered from the charity’s work delivering programmes and supporting community sports clubs during the pandemic. This included feedback from the Winter Warriors and Flyerz inclusive hockey projects, both of which reported a positive impact on participants’ mental health and wellbeing. The report calls for cross-Government strategy to strengthen the use of physical activity and sport to support mental health and wellbeing following Covid-19. It has been produced to help inform Government policy and realise the benefits of community-based physical activity for everyone, with a particular focus on disadvantaged and deprived communities which have been affected disproportionately by the negative impacts of the pandemic.
