Sport and Physical Activity Needs Assessment
We use our deep understanding of the sector to help local authorities develop their strategies for leisure, sport and physical activity, cultural services, selecting a leisure management model and developing new operational partnerships. Our work often has a strong link to public health and wider cross-cutting agendas such as regeneration, community cohesion and place-making. SLC supported Sport England in the development of the Strategic Outcomes Planning Guidance (SOPG) in 2019 and this has been embraced by the sector as an effective diagnostic tool for strategic planning. We are now advising core cities, unitary authorities and Councils in supporting their approach to adapting their service offer following the COVID-19 pandemic.
