A year of Uniting the Movement
A year into Sport England’s 10-year strategy, they take a look back at the work done in its first 12 months.
It has now been one year since Sport England launched their Uniting the Movement strategy to transform lives and communities through sport and physical activity.
To mark the occasion, Sport England are introducing a new video that highlights why action is still needed to support everyone to reap the benefits of being active and gives an outline of the work we’ll undertake with partners, both locally and nationally, over the next three years.
Organised under three pillars, ‘Building the movement’, ‘Meeting people where they’re at’ and ‘Being the change’, this work will help the sector to recover and reinvent from the pandemic, as well as building relevance, capacity and delivery for now and the future.
Sport England will target investment, resources and energy where it’s needed most, and transform the way they operate as an organisation to support the ambitions of the strategy, deliver for the sector and help sustain an increase in the numbers of people engaging in physical activity.
A primary focus of Uniting the Movement is our plan to tackle stubborn inequalities that currently make opportunities to get involved in sport and activity depend too much on your background, gender, bank balance and postcode.
Ahead of publishing our plan for the next three years we asked Fraser Consulting – experts in diversity, equity and inclusion – to undertake an equalities impact assessment.
We wanted to ensure our plan, and the evidence underpinning it, was absolutely and unashamedly aimed at tackling inequalities.
Now complete, we wanted to share the conclusions of the assessment with the sector so the valuable lessons can be used by other organisations aiming to tackle inequalities.
Clare Fraser, from Fraser Consulting, has written a blog summarising her findings.
