Dame Kelly Holmes Trust

Scoping Report

We completed an initial scoping report for ‘The Get on Track’ programme for the Trust  to provide recommendations to the National Programme Manager regarding potential Local Development Partners and other relevant local partners for four London Boroughs.

The work involved completing a SWOT and PEST analysis for each potential partner to determine suitability, as well as other relevant partners, and to source exit routes to community volunteering, sports participation, training, education and employment.

Following identification of the partners a detailed report was presented to the Trust with recommendations.

Sport for Social Change Network

Managed by the Community Action Zone Trust

For two years Urban Balance Consultants provided a lead partner role for all aspects of the Networks covering three inner city London Boroughs, managing the stakeholder groups made up of local government, Cllrs, local and national clubs, Pro-Active Directors, and many NGB’s, trust and charities.

As part of the overall management, our involvement started with developing and seeking members to be part of the Steering group.  We then developed action plans across each of  the networks based on the needs of the each boroughs to deliver a variety of sports, health and fitness sessions and support the partners to develop.

We also provided bid management support for the stakeholders.  Sheila Forster also sits on the Steering group with other members from Sport England, Nike and GLA.
