Girls Active won the most inspiring national initiative at the #BeAGameChanger Awards, at the Troxy in London.
Hosted by the Women’s Sport Trust, the #BeAGameChanger Awards celebrates the organisations and individuals who are doing the most to progress and showcase women’s sport.
The event, now in its third year, brings together elite athletes, journalists, grassroots sports clubs, national governing bodies and charities together, recognising a diverse range of talented individuals and projects that are helping to boost women’s sport.
Girls Active is led by the Youth Sport Trust, funded by Sport England and delivered in partnership with Women in Sport. It offers a simple flexible action planning framework to help teachers and girls work together and address their individual needs.
Ali Oliver, Chief Executive of the Youth Sport Trust said:
We are delighted that Girls Active has won the most inspiring national initiative at the #BeAGameChanger Awards. It is testament to the fantastic collaboration we have had not only between the young women and their teachers whom we have worked, with but also Women in Sport our partners and Sport England for their investment. We thank the Women’s Sport Trust for the award and all the work they do to increase the visibility of women’s sport.
“This shared view of the different needs girls have as they mature and their ability to be the positive influence and lead each other, has led to some tremendous impact across the country. We look forward to sharing the latest insights this work has generated over the past year and are excited about extending the programmes’ reach into primary schools from September.”
This year, the Youth Sport Trust has also launched the Girls Active Awards to celebrate schools’ star Girls Active achievers in the areas of attainment, wellness and leadership. Click here for more information and to nominate and see the latest Girls Active campaign film below.
