Sport England, in partnership with the Chief Cultural Leisure Officers Association (CLOA), has launched a new resource, ‘Navigating Local Systems’, which shares learning and practical tools from three localities – including Wakefield in West Yorkshire.

Place-based system change is an increasingly important conversation, particularly as planning begins for the implementation of ‘Uniting The Movement’. There is a growing interest from places wanting to take a systemic approach to tackle inactivity and the inequalities that still exist.

Do you have a story to share?

Submit your story

The Mind Sport and Activity Network for Yorkshire and Humber are seeking stories of the role sport and activity has played in supporting good mental health.

We know that organisations across the region have used the power of sport and activity to have a positive impact on the mental health of people throughout the county, and the Network want to celebrate these in a series of videos that will be unbranded and available for everyone to use.

You don’t need to have a case study written up, simply complete a short online form by 12pm on Thursday 25 March for the story to be considered.
