Research & Insight


Active Dorset have produced an insight guide aiming to inform our valued partners about the county of Dorset. It highlights the impact of participation or non-participation in physical activity but it also states notable statistics regarding Dorset's demographics, education, life satisfaction, households and areas of deprivation.

The information has been carefully selected to assist partners to grasp an understanding of the importance of physical activity and can be also as resources when collating data for funding applications.
