Sport participation among lower income households in the ACT

As part of a broader focus on improving health outcomes for ACT residents, Sport and Recreation commissioned ORIMA Research to examine barriers to sports participation among lower income households in Canberra, and to better understand what could be done to assist them to overcome these barriers and be more active, and ultimately healthier.

The research points to a number of opportunities for change across the whole sports and activity sector as well as providing practical ways to improve experience of sport and activity for lower income households.
