Structural Adjustments and Changing Demographics

This cluster of work explores the major structural adjustments forced on communities by prevailing economic circumstances, changing work patterns, regional and rural drift, etc. and the effects on the provision of sport and recreation services. The cluster will also focus on the ways in which sport and recreation services will need to cater for changing demographics – e.g. overall population growth, more older people, single parent families, ethnic origins, early years – and inculcate a culture of physical activity into the workplace.
