Active Lives Survey - shape Sport at York

Posted on 27 May 2022

Simply complete the short survey to be in with a chance of winning a £350 gift card.

We know how important being physically active is to our health and mental wellbeing; helping us in our studies, careers, leisure time, relationships, and present and future lives. 

Here at the University of York we want to make sure we are providing the best opportunities and facilities for everyone to support their physical and mental wellbeing, whoever they are and whatever they do at the university. 

Working in collaboration the York Sport team, YUSU, GSA and the University Sport Strategy Group have launched an all staff and student survey. It is hoped that the results of the survey will inform the strategic direction for sport at York in the long term, creating a benchmark to build on, as well as ensuring we are providing the best opportunities right now. It is important that we have an understanding of our staff and students to be able to deliver the best facilities and support to everyone. 

The Active Lives Survey also aligns with national programmes being delivered by partners such as Sport England, looking at the wider landscape, to enhance the nation’s health and wellbeing.

Please complete the survey by midnight on 26 June. Simply enter your email address at the end of the survey to be entered into the prize draw to win a York Bid Gift Card worth £350 .
