Uniting the Movement .pdf
Sport England has published a one-year action plan to help kickstart the process of delivering its long-term strategy, Uniting the Movement. It outlines the work to be done to the end of March 2022, supported by a set of goals – these are the things Sport England will focus on this year and work collaboratively with partners to achieve.
Tackling inequalities is at the heart of the strategy. Sport England has confirmed as part of our year-long plan an additional investment of £20 million to the successful Tackling Inequalities Fund.
The programme supports four key target audiences – those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, people with long-term limiting health conditions and disabled people – recognising they've been disproportionately hit by the pandemic and need much more support to incorporate activity into their daily lives.
Sport England's four goals for this year are:
1. Respond: help the population to keep moving and support the right partners to deliver safely and effectively during Covid-19 restrictions
2. Transform: continue to change ways of working to be consistent with Uniting the Movement, with a primary focus on cultural change and leadership
3. Plan: create a plan for the implementation of Uniting the Movement to 2025 and lay the foundations in this first year
4. Transition: Review, manage and evaluate existing business commitments, functions and responsibilities to further allow the delivery of Uniting the Movement.
