What We Do

Connect, Influence and Provide sport to make it an everyday part of people’s lives

Yorkshire Sport Foundation is a County Sports Partnership, supporting organisations across the nine districts of South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire.

Our vision is to create a vibrant, healthy and prosperous Yorkshire through sport, supporting the work of local, regional and national organisations.

CONNECT: We work with the District Activity Partnerships (DAPs) bringing together organisations to plan and create the environment for better delivery.

  • In Sheffield we led the development and implementation of the city councils’ £120k Athletics Plan for the city
  • A greater focus on clubs and volunteers has been boosted with a successful bid for Sport England innovation funding for a Club Matters project, a national pilot project for club support

INFLUENCE: We believe in the power of sport and physical activity to change people’s lives.

  • We promote the provision of activity in a wide range of strategic policies and ways of working among major decision making bodies in our area.
  • We support Primary Schools to make best use of the Primary School Sport Premium.

PROVIDE: Our charitable status as a CSP allows us to identify and fill gaps in provision across the nine districts.

  • Satellite Clubs creates on-site branch of a local sports club in every secondary school and college
  • Mums’ Team, part of the national ‘Reach’ Campaign encourages women to deliver activities in the community
  • We delivered a Sport Village in Sheffield for Sport Relief and a Sainsbury’s Sport Relief mile in Leeds.
