About Us

A vibrant, healthy and prosperous Yorkshire through sport

Our aims:

MORE PEOPLE taking part in sport on a regular basis

GREATER INCLUSIVITY so that everyone can take part

A robust charity that MAXIMISES INVESTMENT into sport

Yorkshire Sport Foundation is the County Sports Partnership (CSP) for South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire, one of the 44 CSPs in England.

We connect, influence and provide support for sport and physical activity, increasing and improving the many ways people can take part and get active.

A third of us are inactive – as a charity we work closely with partners to help individuals and communities overcome barriers and build healthy habits for life.

We work with partners to deliver Sport England’s strategy Towards an Active Nation.

The strategy will help deliver against the five health, social and economic outcomes set out in the Government’s Sporting Future strategy.

  1. Physical wellbeing
  2. Mental wellbeing
  3. Individual development
  4. Social and community development
  5. Economic development
