Helen Grant, MP

Minister for sport and tourism

As the recently-appointed minister for sports and tourism, Helen Grant plays an influential role in sport at the policy level, particularly with regard to the Olympic and Paralympic legacy. Grant has identified increasing the number of women in sport as one of her main priorities in the role. Grant recognises “from powerful personal experience the power of sport and the positive impact it can have on people’s lives.” Growing up on a council estate in Carlisle, Grant was a successful athlete at school, representing the region at judo, the county at hockey and playing a high standard of tennis. These early sporting accomplishments have fuelled Grant’s interest and make her a key player in the future of UK sport.
