Inspiring Active Places Strategy launched to deliver Jersey’s new sports and wellbeing facilities

Thursday 18 March 2021

The Government of Jersey has today launched its Inspiring Active Places (IAP) Strategy, which outlines new plans for the future of sport and wellbeing facilities across the island.

Part of the over-arching Inspiring an Active Jersey Strategy launched last September, Inspiring Active Places will help Jersey reach its ambition to increase physical activity within the island by 10% by 2030. It is anticipated that the new, state-of-the-art sporting and wellbeing hubs will drive people to become more physically active, whilst also encouraging local clubs to invite competing sports teams to visit the island more frequently.

Jersey Sport welcomes this significant investment into sport over the next ten years and will be working closely with the Government to implement the roll-out of the strategy.

Phil Austin, Chairman of Jersey Sport said, “We’re extremely excited about the plans to develop and improve Jersey’s sporting facilities across the island. These new facilities will be a real boost for local sport, whilst the wellbeing hubs will provide much needed mental health support for islanders.

We believe there is something for everyone in these new plans, but we would encourage as many people as possible to take an active part in the Government’s consultation programme, which will run for six weeks, and so help turn the plans into reality”.
