Over the past year, we have rolled out a number of new programmes to get more young people doing sport: Sport Unlimited is a £36 million initiative which, by 2010-11, aims to give 900,000 more 11 to 19-year-olds opportunities to take part in sports that interest them most outside of school; we now have a new network of school sport coaches; a network of 226 competition managers are increasing competition between schools; and we have delivered 250 new multi-sport clubs for young disabled people.
As set out in the Legacy Action Plan, a ministerial sports legacy board has been set up and met earlier this year. It brings together, for the first time, all those who have a role to play in delivering the sports legacy across the UKthe UK Government, the Devolved Administrations, Sport England, UK Sport, the Youth Sport Trust, London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games and others.
