ukactive and Nike have launched the Open Doors Blueprint, a new guide which has the potential to unlock the UK’s school sport facilities, giving every child and young person access to activities and food outside of school hours.
The blueprint is based on the Open Doors programme, which was designed with Nike and forms part of ukactive’s Schools As Community Hubs policy.
It represents a universal model for unlocking the sports facilities on the doorstep of every community, providing essential support for children and young people’s physical, mental and social wellbeing – particularly for those from low-income households.
The document is a practical resource aimed at schools, local authorities, activity delivery partners and funding organisations, offering best-in-class guidance from the Open Doors programme, which has proved successful in London, Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester.
