Let's Make Scotland More Active

The national physical activity strategy Let’s Make Scotland More Active acknowledges the preventative and therapeutic potential of physical activity to reduce the burden of ill health. The strategy recommends that parents and carers be given support to gain the necessary skills and confidence to take an active role in helping their children to enjoy an active life. This support should start in pregnancy and from birth – encouraging mothers and families to develop an active lifestyle and integrate activity into routine aspects of family life.
