The Workforce Award is designed to recognise the work of organisations, groups and programmes that have used new and creative ways to engage with, develop and support sport’s workforce in London. 

Supporting people to lead physically active lives is a role that falls to many groups and individuals. Both the traditional sport industry and other sectors have an important role to play in enabling people to find, access and remain engaged with physical activity and sport in their daily lives.
The Workforce Award celebrates groups, organisations and initiatives that help more people to champion, advocate for and support people to lead physically active lives through a workforce that understands the needs of Londoners of every background. 

Nomination Criteria 

The Workforce Award celebrates creativity, engagement and impact in supporting grassroots sport’s workforce across the capital. Whether it’s supporting coaches, volunteers, administrators, officials or any number of other parts of the sporting workforce, this Award is looking to identify those initiatives that have had the biggest impact on supporting a bigger, better workforce for grassroots sport in London.
