Strand 2: Encouraging and supporting new providers

 

Changing people’s lives through sport and physical activity

How to attract and support a new workforce from outside the traditional sport and physical activity sector to engage with inactive people
A blended learning and support programme

New providers such as:

  • Social workers who are engaging with drug-users, involving them in fitness classes and, over time, weaning them off drugs
  • Health professionals engaging with people who are lonely and feel isolated by providing activities which help residents to get out of their flats and houses
  • Police officers who are engaging with people, through street football or similar, who are at risk of becoming marginalised 
  • Community connectors who are trying to build bridges between different ethnic and faith groups by organising sporting and community events

There is great scope for developing a stronger offering and platform for these community organisations, helping them to improve their offering and engagement in getting inactive people active and also to provide a network where they can learn from each other.
 
For this group, we see the role of the Academy as training them to develop physical activity programmes that are relevant and engaging for their specific client groups.
