We wanted to find out what helps or stops care-experienced children and young people taking part in sport and physical activity. We also wanted to explore how care experienced children and young people think and feel about sport and physical activity and what it means for them to take part in it.
In order to do this, we identified three areas to explore:
1. How sport and physical activity is provided for care experienced children and young people across England
2. How adults, children and young people think and feel about sport and physical activity
3. How we might make taking part in sport and physical activity easier for care experienced children and young people.
We wanted to write this report to say thank you to everyone who gave their time to share with us their experiences, thoughts and feelings. Without those contributions, this research would not have been possible.
