Women in Sport launch new Support and Advice service for Clubs

Categories: Active Sussex News This Girl Can

There are 1.6 million more men are playing sport once per week than women. Only 0.4% of commercial investment in sport is in women’s sport and 1.3 million more men than women are volunteering in sport. These are the stats that Women in Sport are trying to change.

Women in Sport are piloting a new service to support clubs and providers to access, understand and apply their research with the end goal of empowering more women and girls through sport. Ultimately, they want to transform the sport sector, changing the landscape and getting more women involved in playing, coaching and volunteering in sport.  

Their new service is a one stop shop where you can:

ACCESS
Their research and insight is available to view for free.

UNDERSTAND
 
Submit an enquiry to their team for help putting our insight into practice.

APPLY
They also offer a bespoke paid for service; including workshops, expert panellists and commissioned research.

Richard Croker, Strategic Relationship Manger at London Sport explains how the service has helped them to reach out to women and girls more effectively:

“What we are trying to do here is change behaviour which isn’t easy. This project gave us the opportunity to learn, put research and insight into practice to see what works and what doesn’t. That way we can better understand how to engage more women and girls into sport.”
