Consultancy Services

At the heart of our work is a commitment to supporting more Londoners to live active lives.

To help support organisations that share that goal, we offer the opportunity to commission bespoke project consultancy that taps into three core areas of our specialist expertise.

In the past year, our consultancy service has supported more than 30 partners working across a range of areas to help enhance their impact and make a real difference to physical activity and sport in London.


Supporting our partners navigate the covid-19 pandemic

We are continuing to deliver consultancy projects as normal during the pandemic through innovative and online methods. Full details can be found here for insight, funding and digital marketing.

As the pandemic reaches the six-month mark we recognise that London Sport Consultancy can play an important role to support our partners. We can help to understand the impact of covid-19 on activity levels, and how to navigate this new landscape by unlocking insights and applying creative solutions to continue to champion sport and physical activity. 

We have designed some specific offers below, which can be commissioned on a stand-alone basis or embedded into wider consultancy projects. Contact details are provided for more information and costs.

INSIGHT

The need for effective consultation, to develop programmes and campaigns to ensure provision remains relevant, has never been greater. Recognising many are being challenged to achieve more for less, we offer training and support to help utilise insights and resources and upskill in the effective use of online research methods. Virtual workshops explore ‘research toolkits’ for organisations and non-research professionals keen to conduct enquiries ‘in-house’.

For more information contact our Insight Consultancy Manager, Tristan Farron-Mahon

DIGITAL MARKETING

We can help to support your target audience to stay active during the pandemic by using online platforms and tools.

We can help by sharing best practice examples for delivering activity sessions or support online, supporting with strategy development for reaching and engaging audiences online, and creating and managing digital marketing campaigns.

For more information contact our Digital Marketing Lead, Chris Norfield

FUNDING

Virtual funding workshop designed to support you with financial sustainability during these unique times.

Topics include: funding strategy, identification of grants (including covid-19 specific), grant application writing, sponsorship and income diversification.

For more information contact our Specialist Advisor – Funding, Melanie Antao

TECHNOLOGY

The Sport Tech Hub can provide insight, support and identify solutions to help you remain open and individuals to be active during the restrictions. Solutions can be designed to: engage and motivate people to be active from home, enable active travel, support the safe re-opening of facilities, and host virtual physical activity events and challenges.

The Sport Tech Hub is also able to host virtual training sessions to upskill you around a specific technology and digital topic.

What our partners said:

“Working in partnership with London Sport to develop our Physical Activity and Sport Framework 2017-2020 added substantial value to the depth and quality of our work. London Sport provided excellent knowledge of all the factors affecting physical activity and sport behaviours and trends across the borough, presenting back to us an actionable working framework to improve health and reduce inactivity through the implementation of a targeted approach.” 
Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames

“London Sport’s help in connecting us with potential funders and partners has had a major impact. They have developed an excellent feeling for our work and have a strong network of close cross-sector contacts: every introduction made by London Sport to a new potential funder and partner has been relevant and extremely well-considered.” 
Volunteer It Yourself

“The work carried out by London Sport’s insight team has informed decision-making across the TBTT programme, resulting in evidence-based investment that will ensure we maximise the impact of this programme on tennis participation opportunities across the capital. We will continue to work closely with London Sport as we progress through 2018 to provide us with the tools and evidence to effectively allocate these resources in alignment with our aims and objective and those of our match-funding partners.”
