Abstract

Lack of physical activity is a major challenge in the UK, and places substantial burden on the healthcare system. Conversely, participating in physical activity is known to promote physical, mental, and social well-being. Engagement in physical activity remains low in certain places and groups in society. Dumfries and Galloway Health Public Health Team commissioned this Insight Project to try and understand low engagement in physical activity in young people aged 13-25 years, and to generate recommendations to address this. The project had two primary objectives: 1. To use qualitative approaches to understand why young people (aged 13-25 years) in Dumfries and Galloway do or do not engage in existing PA services and provision; 2. To make contextually relevant recommendations for increasing young people’s engagement with PA services and provision in Dumfries and Galloway.
