Quality of life in Jersey benefits from a thriving sports sector

Why Is This Important?

Sport has the potential to enhance anyone's life, both physically and emotionally, and help foster a healthier, fairer society.  An active population is more likely to be a healthy population, with a better quality of life and lower health care costs. Research has also shown the positive effects of sport on education, including improved attainment, lower absenteeism and drop-out rates, and increased progression to higher education. Engagement in sporting activities also builds social cohesion and connections, reducing isolation and improving life satisfaction. A lifestyle supported by a thriving sports sector helps establish Jersey as a desirable place to live and work.
