Improving lives through physical activity and sport

We are almost two years through our four year strategy so we thought this would be a good opportunity to hear from a host of partners who have worked with us to use physical activity and sport to improve the lives of Buckinghamshire and MK residents.

Whilst we have all of our key stakeholders and partners in the room we thought it would be timely to identify more we could do together over the next two years and hear from our colleagues in the Sport England investment team on what they are looking to fund in 2020 and beyond.

Below you can download presentations from the speakers
