Children & Young People
Supporting Devon to Make Physical Activity Central to Young Lives
Half of children in Devon do not move enough to receive the full health benefits of physical activity, so change is needed.
Forming positive physical activity habits can have a profound impact on the lives of young people and society as a whole. We provide and support a variety of initiatives with the aim to do this, from the Active Schools Framework, to the fun Devon School Games events, and coaching support.
