Sport in the Community: Which ways Forward?: Consultation document

E-mail Print

1982 the Sports Council published  Sport in the Community: The Next 10 Years, a strategy for sport generally in the UK and, in particular, a set of broad programmes and projects for the Council itself and the numerous interests with which it works. The broad lines of the strategy were accepted by most organisations concerned with sport and recreation. The Council agreed to review the strategy at its mid-term, and it will be undertaking this task over the next 12 months.

As part of the review process this consultation paper, which has been prepared by the Council's Policy Planning Group, seeks views on a number of issues:

  • whether adequate resources— eg of finance, skills, and organisation— have been available for sport to meet the strategy's targets?
  • whether there are new trends in society and in sport which the Council should take into account?
  • whether there are new opportunities for, or hindrances to, the development of sport?
  • whether the role of the Sports Council needs to change?
  • whether the original objectives of the strategy are still sound for 1988-1993, or whether they need substantial modification or addition?

More detailed issues on which the Council would welcome your views are set out in the paper. Some organisations may wish to respond to only a few of these which directly affect their interests, whilst others may seek to comment on them all — the choice is yours.

Editor's comments - [  This is the consultation document (in 1987) that invited Local authorities, national governing bodies and others interested in sport and physical activity to comment on the sports councils' work since 1982 and their policy Sport in the Community the next ten years. Lots of rather good stuff in this for students.  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J. (2012). This page title in italics. Retrieved date, from In the text: Cryer (2012)
