Overall, the results of this evaluation provided evidence to support the achievement of the LAG objectives, particularly around enhancing and building existing physical activity strategies and initiatives, encouraging collaboration and organisational partnerships and encouraging a sustained physical activity program beyond the completion of the grant. 

The LAG funding appeared less effective in encouraging LGAs to develop or review their physical activity plans and had a moderate impact on the encouraging intra LGA partnerships and collaboration.
