Inclusive Activity Design

Learn how designing activities around audience needs is a recipe for success, and how we incorporate this approach.

Designing activities around audience needs

Designing activities around audience needs is a recipe for success.

Learning about target audiences is important and helps to create activities that work for them. Utilise insight and resources already available and talk to those you want to work with directly or through connecting with organisations based in the community.

Insight & resources

Our Insight pages provide a wealth of information including Sport England data and evaluation tools useful for funding applications and targeting programmes, as well as a range of case studies, research and reports from ourselves and partners.

Useful toolkits and resources have also been created based on the Campaigns we support.

In addition to this there are a range of national organisations who provide support and resources to help you provide inclusive sport and physical activity sessions.

As well as the national partners listed above, there are many local partners that are driving inclusiveness in Sussex and so we encourage you to connect with them via our range of networks and community of learning opportunities.
