Date posted: 8 January 2014

A new report released by the Closing the Gap Clearinghouse as a part of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, examines the beneficial effects of participation in sports and recreation for supporting healthy Indigenous Australian communities.

The paper, Supporting healthy communities through sports and recreation programs, reviews over 30 studies, covering all geographic areas from inner city to remote regions, and ages groups ranging from primary school to young adult, and shows that there are many benefits from participation in sport and recreation programs.
