Over £1 billion is being invested into youth and community sport—helping to ensure the lasting legacy of the London 2012 Games and providing all young people the chance to begin a lifetime's habit of playing sport. This will be complemented by the recently announced £150 million School Sport Premium, which will see funds go directly into the hands of primary school head teachers, for them to spend on improving the quality of PE and sport for all their pupils.
