Youth Sport Trust Director joins SRA board

The Youth Sport Trust's Director of Policy and Communications, Phil Chamberlain, has been elected to join the board of directors at the Sport and Recreation Alliance (SRA).

The Youth Sport Trust's Director of Policy and Communications, Phil Chamberlain, has been elected to join the board of directors at the Sport and Recreation Alliance (SRA).

The Sport and Recreation Alliance is the umbrella organisation for the governing and representative bodies of sport and recreation in the UK and represents more than 320 members - organisations like The FA, the Rugby Football Union, UK Athletics, the Ramblers, British Rowing and the Royal Academy of Dance.

Phil will bring his knowledge of working at the Youth Sport Trust, along with his vast experience of the charity sector, policy development, programme design and delivery, political influence, communication and promotion.

Speaking of his appointment, Phil said:

"I am delighted to have been appointed as a board member at the SRA and hope I can make a valuable contribution and support the organisation to promote the interests of sport and recreation.

"At the Youth Sport Trust we strongly believe in partnership working and have a range of experts in the areas of PE and sport. We also believe that sport changes lives and it will be extremely rewarding to work with a likeminded organisation which is dedicated to getting more people physically active."

Phil will continue in his role at the Youth Sport Trust as normal. He will commence his three-year term of office at the SRA after this year's Annual General Meeting on 9 July 2014.
