Our definition of Community Sport is any sport as recognised by Sport England which is organised. This can be formal or informal and is provided for local community consumption, as opposed to anything that is aimed at regional or national participants.
At London Sport, we have four key aims within the Community Sport space:
- To become the primary authority on Community Sport in London.
- To be an integral component in a sustainable Community Sport ecosystem.
- To become an effective champion for Community Sport in London.
- For more Londoners to be regularly involved in Community Sport from a diverse range of communities.
National Governing Bodies (NGBs)
National Governing Bodies are vital to our mission of helping more Londoners live better lives through being active. That’s why we work closely with dozens of NGBs, supporting their plans in the capital and collaborating with them to break down barriers to participation.
As well as meeting with NGBs individually, we are regular host events – both online and offline – to help NGBs network with each other and share information and learnings.
If you are an NGB and wish to receive information about these events, please submit your contact information here.
David is our Strategic Lead for Community Sport with extensive strategic and operational experience gained with not-for-profit organisations within the field of sport management.
