The Daily Mile Foundation has developed this strategy in partnership with the Scottish Government and in consultation with delivery partners. The strategy is based on a model of partnerships and integration with current and existing programmes. The strategy is vital to achieve the ambition of Scotland becoming the first Daily Mile Nation – a nation where people walk, jog, run and wheel The Daily Mile as part of everyday life – and to ensure sustainability.

With all the uncertainty in the world just now which COVID-19 has created, one thing that is clear is that physical activity has a huge part to play in people's lives in the weeks and months to come. There is a real opportunity to build on the positive habits that people have been demonstrating and the Scottish Government and The Daily Mile Foundation are keen to support these to be sustained for the long term. There is now an opportunity to engage with the most vulnerable people in our communities who have experienced particularly difficult times. The impact of COVID-19 has been felt by everyone in Scotland across all walks of life and provided further challenges around physical and mental health. The Daily Mile can be part of the solution to improved health and wellbeing through physical activity.
