Analyse and explain the common features of organisations that are making the largest economic contribution within an AHT subsector (e.g. type, size, location of businesses). What lessons can be learnt to drive future growth policy?

Background

AHT would like to develop its understanding of the impact that their sectors have on growth and productivity in the UK, both in an economic and social sense. It is also interested in developing knowledge around how AHT sectors help to develop positive socio-cultural impacts, such as an increase of civic pride, wellbeing and health for those who participate and engage with the sectors.
