This publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Project management arrangements for the Taking Part survey, including the terms of reference for the Taking Part steering group.



Taking Part is the key evidence source for DCMS and was commissioned primarily to provide a single evidence source on participation in culture and sport.

The survey is currently used to measure and inform departmental indicators, inform the development and impact of DCMS policy, and to understand the drivers and barriers of participation in cultural and sporting activities.
