Sports services for the local community

Published: 09/07/2014

Team Durham at Durham University has established a unit of three sports development officers to communicate, engage, and deliver sport and fitness activities for the local community.

This includes working with each of the 47 primary schools in Durham, and working with marginalised groups through initiatives such as Street League.

Drawing from their success, the unit has been able to attract substantial grants to fund and sustain community activities, including an £80,000 grant from the NHS under the changing the physical activity landscape programme.
