We believe it’s important to be held to account by our stakeholders. This is why everyone at SportInspired strives for complete transparency in our service and why we always take every opportunity to improve what we do. Hence, below, in more detail, is what private sector stakeholders can expect from us:
|Benefits you can expect||Ways we try to measure these benefits|
|I. Effective engagement with local communities – realising real benefits from your Corporate Responsibility programmes||The provision of evidence that shows measurable, positive impact upon a local audience, e.g., youth leadership opportunities, increased community sports club profile / membership, stronger community relationships between youth organisations and other stakeholders|
|II. Helping businesses to benefit from a more healthy, active workforce||Number of adult volunteers who actively participate in sport
Number of adult volunteers who report being inspired to take up sport/more sport
|III. Private sector employee volunteers will take part in a fun event, boosting staff morale and promoting team work||Employee volunteers report a positive buzz at work after the event
Employee volunteers report a sense of contribution and achievement
|IV. Opportunities for junior staff to improve their project management and communication skills||Number of employee volunteers who have taken part in the event design and community engagement necessary to deliver a Community Games|
|V. Opportunities for local businesses to promote themselves and increase their profile to a local audience||Number of local businesses with a presence at the Games|
|VI. Private sector employees gain a sense of connection to the local communities in which they work||Number of employee volunteers who report a deeper sense of understanding of the issues faced by communities in which the Games are held|
We work with SportInspired because they know how to deliver for the community and for corporates.
When I did 10 metres I felt great. I felt really happy when I did my 250. Everyone says “Well done” and “That’s great Lewis” and that makes me feel happy. It’s like an achievement of my life. It’s one of the best things I've ever done.
SportInspired’s Games aren’t just about having a fantastic day. It is great for business and delivers a foundation for promoting sports participation and accessing sport in the community, leaving a tangible and sustainable legacy we can all be proud of.
You see the kids coming in and some of them are as quiet as anything, withdrawn, and they go out and they are maybe six inches taller than they were when they came in, you know, just on a complete high.
SportInspired’s approach has provided the Council with a platform that brings all key stakeholders together and helps us to align our projects and initiatives. In a recent Games programme, 92% of the 900 young people stated they were more likely to take up sport, had improved their team working skills, and had more confidence.
I want to say how pleased me and my husband are about all the opportunities you have given my boy. He is really proud of himself and we are really proud of him as well.
Through working with SportInspired, I have gained many local contacts with schools, community clubs and local community. SportInspired has played a key role in helping to lay down a clear pathway to the community that will help further develop and inspire our children. Thames View Junior School has welcomed this with open arms, and so have many other schools in the Borough.
The games are great! It gives young people the opportunity to try a number of different sports and that is key. It has really raised the awareness of basketball in the community and has helped our school programmes grow from strength to strength.
I had fun with my friends and it was the best day of my whole life!
I deal with a lot of difficult customers on the phone, and whenever I get a difficult customer I just think of the day I was there and how happy the kids were.
Thanks for the amazing opportunity, the students loved it, and will remember it for a long time.
“SportInspired has become a key partner in the delivery of a lasting legacy of sports with our School Sports Partnership and its member schools. They clearly understand the needs of schools and young people when delivering their programmes, which are of the highest quality. We welcome any future involvement with the organisation and its employees, in helping to inspire a generation.”
