Chief Leisure Officers & National Governing Bodies Forum

  • This event has passed.

London Sport are inviting heads of leisure, physical activity and sport services to come together for the second of the 2019 bi-annual meetings.

With 33 London boroughs there is a myriad of opportunities, challenges, and possibilities for everyone to take on board, and nearly always someone whose been through similar thought processes, technical operations, strategic planning, and undertaking delivery.

For London to become the Most Active City and support less active Londoners into leading more active lives we need to work together and share what we know.



This all-day event includes a morning session with representatives for National Governing Bodies and County Associations and an afternoon meeting focused on themes identified by the steering group ahead of the group convening. Lunch is provided.

Afternoon Sessions: 

The afternoon session will be focused on understanding the current London landscape across three societal agendas. Each session will contain a short overview of the current policy and challenges within London followed by a discussion during which we’ll be capturing information on stakeholders boroughs have, and are, working with, and how these connect together – with a view to understanding not only the local approaches that can be applied, but where there are common threads and the sector should be jointly tackling the issue head-on.
