We work in communities to tackle inequalities and reduce inactivity across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, which aligns to Sport England’s Uniting the Movement strategy.
Working in partnership with local authorities, public health, education, environment, housing developers, youth sector, national governing bodies of sport, community groups and sports clubs, we respond to local need, through being able to support, intervene and develop capacity to create a joined up approach.
By understanding local communities, the assets, the community groups and clubs and audiences they are working with; we aim to collaborate and influence to develop inclusive and accessible sport and physical activity provision across the county, recognising that there are areas of need that we can support to become more resilient.
Our community support includes:
- Working with local community groups to embed physical activity into their “offer”
- Collaborating with national governing bodies of sport locally and nationally with support to local sports clubs
- Sharing advice and guidance around safeguarding best practice
- Community activation across our geography
- Developmental support to ensure local providers are meeting the needs of local communities
- Support with community voice consultation
- Making provision more accessible for children, young people, families and empowering community clubs to reach a broader demographic and reach
- Embedding active roles within local communities such as enabling sustainable activity
