How can professional and elite sports clubs help their communities?
The House of Lords Select Committee on a National Plan for Sport and Recreation continues its public evidence sessions this week with two panels. The Committee will hear from the charitable arms of Everton FC, Saracens and Accrington Stanley to consider the role professional sports clubs can play in supporting their local communities. The Committee will also explore how different forms of recreation and physical activity such as angling, yoga and group exercise classes can get the country more active.
- Why is it important for elite sports clubs to get involved in their community?
- What is the relationship between elite sports clubs and local authorities and local Active Partnerships?
- What are the challenges and opportunites faced to increase participation rates across different sports and activities?
- How are diversity and inclusion promoted? How much of a barrier do negative perceptions or stereotypes represent to different sports and activities, and how can this be tackled?
