Sports England works with a number of many different
key organisations which are

•  Working with the sector to encourage
innovation and share best practice particularly through applying the principles
and practical learning of behaviour change

•  Working with a much more broader range of
partners, including the private sector, using all they expertise as well as the
investment to help others join their resources

•  Working also nationally where it makes sense
to do so (for example on infrastructure and workforce) but also by encouraging
stronger local collaboration to deliver a more joined-up experience of sport
and activity for customers

•  Helping sport to keep pace with the digital
expectations of customers

•  Putting customers at the heart of what we do,
responding to how they organise their lives and helping the sector to be more
welcoming and inclusive, especially of the groups which are currently
under-represented in sport

•  Helping those who are active now to keep on
continuing, but at a much lower cost to
the public purse over time. Sports
England will work with the parts of the sector that serve the core market to
help them to come up with new ideas in which they can become more sustainable
and self-sufficient

•  Investing more for children and young people
from the age of five to build positive attitudes for sports and activities as a
foundation of an active life

•  Focusing more money and resources on tackling
inactivity because this is where the most gains for the individual and for
society are greatest

Working closely with governing bodies of
sport and others who support people who are already playing regularly, to
help them to become even more efficient, sustainable and diversify their
sources of funding.         

Helping sport keep pace with the digital
expectations of customers – making it much easier to book a badminton
court as it would be for booking a hotel room

Investing up to 30 million pounds in a new
volunteering strategy, enabling more variety of people to get the benefits
of volunteering and attracting a new, more diverse range of volunteers

Trying new ways of working locally by
investing in up to 10 places in England – a mix of urban and rural areas

Working with sports sectors to always put the customers first of everything
they do, and by using the principles of behaviour change to inform them of
the work

A dedicated funding to get more children
and young people active from the ages of five, including a new funding for
those family-based activities and
offering training to at least two teachers in every secondary school in
England to help them better themselves to meet the needs of all children, regardless
of their level of sporting ability.

Key features of the new
strategy are:   

• Communities and the
voluntary sector – they will also work with the local authorities, voluntary
groups and others to allow the broadest possible sporting offer to young people.
Between now and 2017, there will be a budget of over 50 million pounds
available in funds which will be open to the well-run sports clubs (whether
they are connected to a national governing body), voluntary groups and others
to provide an exciting and appealing sporting experience. In total, they will have
invested well over £250m with the community aspects of this strategy.

• Investing in facilities – a
further one hundred and sixty million will be spent on brand new and upgraded
sports facilities, with the already ninety million which already has been
invested by sports England’s places, people,
play programme. This will include funding for the very first time to allow
schools to open their own sporting facilities (three-quarters of all sports
halls and a third of all swimming pools) to be open to the general public.

• Working with the sport’s
governing bodies: which they focus will be on youth – they will in turn ask those
sports governing bodies, where young people are the main contributors, to spend
almost around sixty percent of the
funding on the activities that will promote sport as a habit for life amongst
younger people. They will also ensure that sports are completely focused on
what they will need to achieve, with payment by results – including taking back
the funding from governing bodies that do not accomplish the agreed upon objectives.
The system will be wholly transparent.

• By improving the links with schools
and community sports clubs – they will do this by working with many different sports
which include football and tennis to name a few but there are many other to
establish at least 6,000 partnerships between schools and local sports clubs by
the year 2017 – making it easier for younger people to remain playing sport
once they have finished education. The objective is that every secondary school
and many primary schools will have the links with at least one local club. Further
to that, every county sports partnership
will have a dedicated officer whose job it is to work on making links between
schools and community sports clubs within the local area.

 

• Building a legacy of
competitive sport at schools – school games allows the basis for competitive
school sport within the districts, schools, county and in turn for creating a
sporting habit for life national levels – with the lottery, public and private sector having already funded of over
£150m which was secured until the year 2015. In addition, PE remains a
compulsory part of the National curriculum.

They will do this with the
help of sports England by:

They are seeking a large
increase in the number of people regularly playing the sport. In particular, they want to raise the number of fourteen to twenty five year olds who play
sports and to allow them to enable them to establish a long-lasting network of links between schools and sports clubs within
the local communities so that they can keep on continue having young people from
playing sports from up to and beyond the age of twenty-five.

Sporting Future: A New
Strategy for an Active Nation is making more opportunities to allow children to
take part in and developing a love of the
sport and physical activity is essential
to ensuring their long-term enjoyment and participation. Providing for children
and young people will sit rightly at the top of a new strategy for sport in
this country. They would like to see more happy healthy active children and to continue this in when they are adults
this will allow the talented primary school children of today to become the
next big sporting stars of the future.

The government is making known
its solo commitment to Olympic and Paralympic success but has also extended
that ambition to non-Olympian sports where they will support success starting
for the grassroots investment in those sports, and by also sharing UK Sport’s expertise
and knowledge. This strategy shows what they expect of the sector and to also deliver
this vision, and how they will support it by getting there.

It is the government’s goal
that all appropriate departments work very closely
together to allow them to create a more physically active nation, where the children
and young people can enjoy the best sporting opportunities available and people
no matter what age they are and what background they come from can enjoy the
many different benefits that sport and physical activity can bring out, at every
stage in their lives.

This report will go over about
the new sporting futures a new strategy for an active nation and how it has
replaced the creating a sporting habit for life. Sporting futures is the cross-government strategy which will help
deal with low levels of sports
participation and the very high numbers of inactivity across this country. In this
strategy, the government is changing the
way in what success in sport means, with a completely new focus on five different
key outcomes: the first one being an individual
development the second one being social and community development the
third one being an economic development
the fourth one being mental wellbeing and last but not least the fifth one
being physical wellbeing, In the future, there will be decisions made on how
the funding will be made on the basis of how well that sport and physical
activity can deliver.
