This guidance from Public Health England can be used by local level practitioners and commissioners to begin tackling inequalities in physical activity across and within protected characteristic groups. It presents the findings of a review, analysis and research aimed at understanding the enablers, barriers and opportunities for increasing physical activity across inequality groups.

Three major themes are identified as considerations for action by practitioners and commissioners:

·        enablers, barriers, and identifying opportunity

·        community consultation, engagement, and partnership

·        adopting a holistic approach for protected characteristics and intersectionality.

The document concludes with a full set of recommendations for commissioners and practitioners to consider when designing services and interventions locally.
