Evaluating Your Activities

If you are planning to organise an activity to help physically inactive people to become inactive, or want to evaluate your existing programmes, Active Sussex have created a tool to do this.

  • Have you adapted your sessions for people to attend in winter?
  • What information is available to potential participants?
  • Could your activity name put some people off

These are some of the questions you can use to evaluate how your activity can engage more physically inactive people.

If you are planning to organise an activity to help physically inactive people to become inactive, or want to evaluate your existing programmes, Active Sussex have created an interactive tool to do this. Using Sport England’s Inactivity Design Principles and Checklist, we have created a series of qualitative questions to ask about each activity. These questions are based on what has been found to work in order to engage and retain inactive people in physical activity.

Active Sussex can provide an interactive online tool which will give you an indicative score for each Inactivity principle, to help you focus on the area where changes would have the most impact. Please contact us at the details below to access this free tool.

Once you have answered these questions, you can identify areas where you are doing well, areas for improvement and additional things you can do that would help you to engage more inactive people.

For example you may be organising fantastic sessions, but perhaps your marketing is off-putting to some inactive people. A small change could lead to you recruiting more participants.
