Moving the Goal Posts: Poverty and Access to Sport for Young People

This study, conducted by the LSE Housing and Communities Research Team on behalf of StreetGames, looks into the depth and extent of poverty in Britain; its impact on area disadvantage; how it affects young people and families, and their participation in sport. In particular, it considers why high poverty areas suffer such major disadvantages and throw up so many barriers in the field of “active learning” and whether informal sport and physical activity could actually help.

We owe special thanks to the 106 young people and parents who shared their experiences.
