What's so special about 'Doorstep Sport'? Quite simply, it's delivering sport to young people where they want it, when they want it and how they want it. There's no 'one size fits all' – it's all about finding the right solution for each community. This approach doesn’t only get more kids into sport, it changes lives and communities.
Through empowering local providers, providing them with the skills, support and knowledge necessary to develop doorstep sport projects, StreetGames Legacy Leaders is developing a network of grassroots sports coachers, leaders, volunteers and participants who are ideally positioned to harness the energy of the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games by inspiring lasting change in their communities. So far the charity has recruited over 3,300 coaches and 3,000 volunteers, who between them have gained over 3,200 new qualifications.
Getting more kids into sport is one of the key aims of the Inspire programme, we are very proud of this great project. I wonder what doorstep sport any of you would want in your communities?
