What is the CSP Network

The CSP Network is a nationwide network of 43 locally based strategic organisations, known as County Sports Partnerships (CSPs) that are committed to Improving Lives by Growing Grassroots Sport and Physical Activity.

In order to address worrying levels of inactivity in our society, tackle the stubborn inequalities that still exist in sport, and maximise the social and economic impact of sport and physical activity, CSPs adopt a whole system approach where we seek to create the conditions for success locally and make physical activity everyone’s business.

 CSPs do this by creating an in-depth understanding of the needs of their communities, seek to influence policy and secure investment into the sector, support the development of a welcoming and inclusive workforce and broker cross sector partnerships and impactful programmes
