House of commons document on Olympic Legacy.

Planning for the London 2012 Games was underpinned by a commitment to create a positive legacy from the Games, including a positive sporting legacy.

The Labour and Coalition Governments both published plans to use the Games to, among other things, increase grass roots participation in sport – Inspiring the next generation.

According to the November 2013 report of the House of Lords Select Committee on the Olympic and Paralympic Legacy, a "post-Games step change in participation across the UK and across different sports did not materialise.” 

In a March 2015 parliamentary response, the Government said that 1.6 million more people, including over 260,000 more disabled people, were playing sport once a week than in 2005.
