Sported has recently received £44,600 as part of a development grant. Wil Woan Consultancy has been working in partnership with Sported for one year.
Sported has a network of over 2,500 members across the UK and has a strong track record of delivering people-led projects through sports. Sported builds resilience and character amongst young people giving them confidence and the life skills they need to live, learn, work and achieve. They do this by bringing together experienced and passionate local volunteers who use sport and physical activity to tackle a range of issues facing their local community such as crime, isolation and discrimination.
The vast majority of youth and community sport groups are under-funded and under-resourced. These new funds will be spent in developing independent analysis of the sporting sector and redesign new approaches to delivering programmes and their benefits.
Wil added, “Funding like this is equally as important as grants for particular events and programmes. It allows organisations to step back to analysis their work to ensure that they are truly providing the best options, support, and deliverance of their investment of both their time and funds.”
