Childhood activity map launched in Parliament

PoliMapper has been used in numerous events at Parliament and at the political party conferences in the last couple of years.

But our most recent assignment came with a twist.

In addition to providing our interactive mapping tool, we designed and produced a display stand featuring one of our maps.

The client was the Sport and Recreation Alliance who required a map to show levels of childhood activity by local authority as part of their #RightToBeActive campaign.

The interactive map (which you can see here) provides a comprehensive insight into how children in England are taking part in sport and physical activity.

It was launched at a parliamentary reception on 26th June, with guests including Justine Greening and Tom Watson.

The underlying data for the childhood activity map derives from a publicly available source - Sport England’s Active Lives Children and Young People Survey 2017/18 - showing again that there is a multitude of publicly available data sources from which you can draw data to make your arguments.
