About Active Devon


Physical activity and sport help to bring people and communities together and can be an instrument for change and inclusion. 

Active Devon recognises the power and influence of physical activity and sport to change lives for the better.  Everyone should have access to the potential benefits of physical activity and sport, which is why equality, inclusion and widening access are of critical importance for Active Devon.

Active Devon aims to increase and widen participation for everyone in physical activity and sport. To read our Equality Policy please CLICK HERE
