StreetGames briefing paper
This briefing paper draws on the learning from StreetGames doorstep sport projects to show how national governing bodies (NGB) of sport can support their clubs to create young volunteers. An increase in volunteering can lead to increases in participation in both those under and over the age of 16.
StreetGames has a dedicated research and knowledge team which:
Analyses rates of participation and engagement in sport to explore the differentials across socio-economic groups.
Explores and analyses participation trends amongst young people from lower socio-economic groups within specific sports
Commissions and reviews specific research studies aimed at exploring attitudes and motivations towards sport and physical activity amongst young people from lower socio-economic groups
Identifies and prepares briefing papers and good practice case studies in doorstep sport to share the learning of ‘what works’.
