Tug of war illustrating Central Fund survey

The Royal Air Force Central Fund has launched a survey to gain insight into sport and physical activity across the RAF. Working with approved MOD supplier YouGov, this new piece of market research will give the RAF’s charity for sport and physical activity a sound understanding of the current state of play and enable it to provide support where it is most needed.

RAF Central Fund CEO, Ross Perriam, said:

“Our research project will provide us with evidence as to the importance and impact physical activity has within the RAF. This first of its kind survey will set the baseline for us and provide a starting point to monitor provision changes and how the population responds. We want as many people as possible regardless of their current level of physical activity to take part by completing our survey. Not only do we want to get as full a picture as possible but we want to understand what the barriers to physical activity in the RAF might be so that we can help address them.”

“Ultimately, our charity exists to safeguard the health and wellbeing of serving personnel through sports and physical activity and through this research we will be able ensure that the support we provide benefits as many people as possible and is focussed where it is most needed.

The YouGov supported survey into sport and physical activity across the RAF can be accessed at yougov.com/rafcf  and is being rolled out across the RAF. The closing date for responses is Friday 3 April 2020 and key findings from the research will be announced at the RAF Sports Conference at the end of April 2020.
