Based on data from the Active People Survey 9 (2015) 34.4% of adults (over 16) in Merseyside regularly participate in sport and physical activity. The challenge for Merseyside Sports Partnership is to identify the range of interventions that offer the highest probability of achieving sustained growth in adult participation year on year, and work with our partners to deliver them.

We also deliver a range of interventions to increase participation, from the Sainsbury’s School Games in Merseyside to Sportivate sessions and a deliver a year round programme of disability events for both young people and adults.
