The need to encourage more active, healthy lifestyles has never been greater, we are faced with the most inactive generation of all time, this inactivity contributes to the onset of over twenty non-communicable diseases and now costs the nation £20bn per year.
County Sports Partnerships are committed to helping everyone become more physically active to improve their physical and mental well-being. CSPs have a wealth of expertise and experience in developing and delivering targeted sport and physical activity interventions to enhance health and well-being. They provide a unique bridge between the health and sport and physical activity sectors, helping health commissioners use sport and physical activity to address their local health needs, and helping the sport sector to adapt and present its offer to contribute to health related outcomes and target groups - a real win-win!
CSPs work closely with Local Authority Public Health teams, Health and wellbeing Boards, Clinical Commissioning groups and numerous NHS Organisations. They can help identify the physical activity and health needs of their population, lead the production of strategies, support capacity building in the third sector, and can support the design, delivery, monitoring and review of physical activity interventions.
Through their project management experience in delivering effective interventions, their extensive network of providers, and collaboration with other CSPs across England, CSPs can manage the provision of a wide range of activities and services to support the prevention and treatment of ill-health.
