Be Active, Be Healthy establishes a new framework for the delivery of physical activity aligned with sport for the period leading up to the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games and beyond. It also sets out new ideas for local authorities and primary care trusts (PCTs) to help determine and respond to the needs of their local populations, providing and encouraging more physical activity, which will benefit individuals and communities, as well as delivering overall cost savings. This plan is largely focused on adults, as children and young peopleâ?Ts physical activity is being taken forward through a number of other specific government initiatives.
