Sport England announce bold new strategy

Sport England

Sport England has announced that its new strategy will have an unwavering focus on the benefits that sport can bring to people and society.

There will be a commitment to make it easier to take part in sport, to ensure that everyone is welcome.  Investment in those who are currently least active will triple.

Volunteering will be recognised increasingly for the benefits to the individual and there will be a streamlining of funding streams.

A more joined up approach for customers will be delivered through encouraging stronger local collaboration.

"This is a bold and challenging approach which we really welcome. We look forward to playing our part in making the strategy a reality and growing engagement in sport across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly" commented Mike Thomas, Director, Cornwall Sports Partnership
