Youth Sport Trust responds to Sport England consultation

As a result of the Government’s new strategy for sport, a consultation was released by Sport England to address the new responsibilities conferred to them. The Youth Sport Trust welcomed this consultation and the response we developed has been submitted to Sport England.

With the consultation process now over we look forward to receiving the strategy Sport England will formulate to meet the requirements of their new remit, such as their responsibility over sport and physical activity participation in the 5-14 year old population, outside of school. We are pleased to publish our response here, to build on the cross-sector working encouraged by Sport England and the Government’s sport strategy.

Through our 20 years of delivery on the ground, working alongside key strategic partners and our network of partner and member schools (as well as in 63 countries across the world) the Youth Sport Trust has developed a deep understanding of sport development. This insight guided our response and set out how we believe Sport England should meet the new outcomes set out for them by the Government. 

We look forward to working with Sport England and will support any new approach that offers young people inclusive sport and physical activity opportunities, delivered by a confident, inspiring and expertly trained workforce, to foster a love of being active.
