Sport for Change
The Robertson Trust has had a long-standing interest in supporting sport and physical activity projects, where sporting activities are intentionally used to deliver social impact for individuals and communities beyond increasing participation in sport. This is sometimes referred to as Sport for Change or Sport for Development.
Through this theme we aim to:
- Increase understanding of Sport for Change approaches and ‘what works’ when trying to develop sustainable sports organisations that meet the needs of their communities
- Develop the evidence base on what type of approaches are most likely to be effective in ensuring that sport is accessible to all, and that positive change is able to happen as a result of participation
- Support funded organisations to deliver better impact through sport
- Inform the policy and practice environment around Sport for Change
