But if no-one connects the organisations and helps them to identify the areas they have in common and how they can share their knowledge, those conversations simply would not happen. That means each organisation would have to invent everything for itself from scratch time and again, taking the long route.
We believe sustainable funding is about more than writing a cheque from one organisation to another. We believe in building partnerships that see different cross-sector funders come together to support programmes both with their short-term needs and their long-term ambitions in mind.
We commission research, using the data and information we get from individual programmes to help to build stronger programme curricula; helping to identify the DNA of successful programmes to that they can be scaled and replicated. In the end, we want more children and young people’s lives to be transformed through sport, and we are committed to supporting family of programmes in this common goal.
