Our work in community sport is widespread and varied to achieve our aims of ‘More people taking part in sport on a regular basis’ and ‘Greater inclusivity so that everyone can take part’.
Here’s a brief overview of our projects:
- Active Burngreave is a project working in partnership with Sport England and Comic Relief to create community change in a Sheffield town.
- Better in Kirklees is a social prescribing scheme, working in partnership with Touchstone, linking patients referred by their GP or Adult Social Care to voluntary and community sector support, to supplement their NHS care.
- Satellite clubs make it easier for young people to get active – and stay active. They provide opportunities to take part regularly in sport and activity through the creation of enjoyable, appealing and convenient opportunities for young people that are based around their needs.
- We offer support to talented athletes, specifically through our STARS programme in West Yorkshire.
