Foundation submits evidence to Health & Sport inquiry
20 August 2012
The Foundation welcomed the opportunity to submit written evidence to the Health and Sport Committee recently. The inquiry is looking at what support is available for community sport and will also address the following issues:
• The contribution of people – focusing on the role of volunteers – and looking at how to ensure they have the opportunities and support necessary to best contribute to sport at a local level
• The benefit of local sports clubs both to (i) the preventative health agenda and (ii) their communities
• The importance of places for sport, in terms of availability, accessibility, affordability, and the quality of facilities.
Our full submission is now available to view
