CYP wanted to explore how their county associations could work better with CSPs at strategic and delivery level, with a particular focus on using the Sport Unlimited programme to do this.

What did we do?

We worked with approximately 30 CSPs and 30 county associations, designing and delivering five workshops which explored the opportunities for the two networks to work together. We identified Sport Unlimited (Sport England’s youth sport programme) as a useful way for the two sets of organisations to work together and explored ways in which they could do this.

What was the result of our work?

As a result of the workshops, 25 of the CSPs and county associations produced joint action plans. They then used these to work together more closely through Sport Unlimited (now known as Sportivate).

“Thanks for a job well done. The commissioned work with Press Red was extremely successful. An extremely committed, passionate and knowledgeable staff team who offered great expertise and service. From start to finish they demonstrated professionalism and an aptitude in sport consultancy, developing an agenda that stimulated dialogue and planning, getting to the crooks of the principles that underlined potential links, identified challenges and solutions. The result was a series of practical workshops that achieved above and beyond its aims and objectives. Their efficiency within which they performed and completed the job was outstanding. They went out of their way to make sure we were satisfied. We certainly would not hesitate to recommend Press Red.

Thanks again.”
