Ahead of the fourth year of Sportivate delivery, we worked with Northamptonshire Sport to help them maximise the programme. The CSP was struggling with a lack of volume and quality of applications.
We ran a consultation exercise with the local authorities, sports clubs, schools and private providers to understand their approach to using Sportivate. We identified a clear opportunity for the CSP to take a more proactive approach with Sportivate, supporting local organisations to understand how to use Sportivate and how to write strong applications.
Having failed to achieve target in the year before we worked with the CSP, they then achieved target in year four and continued to build the programme in the subsequent years of Sportivate. We also provided them with further insight into the participants that had taken part in Sportviate to date.
