Physical Activity Needs Assessment

The Physical Activity Needs Assessment contains a broad review of Physical Activity in Doncaster.

Included within the Physical Activity Needs Assessment are reviews of Doncaster’s position with regards to “Walking”, “Cycling”, “Sports”, “Dance” and “Parks and Open Spaces”. These five themes are central to our Physical Activity delivery strategy - "Get Doncaster Moving".

The following reports represent our work to understand the current state of play in Doncaster on these themes. They are works in progress and will be updated as our knowledge in these areas develops. The reports are being shared to allow stakeholders to support the development of these strands.
