Covid-19: Our Support for Sport and Physical Activity

Updated 19th July 2021

The local response by Black Country partners and communities to the impact of Covid-19 has been fantastic.

The latest guidance as of 19th July 2021 can be found here.

We have seen new ideas and approaches to get and keep people active, local clubs and leisure operators offering staff and facilities to support wider community efforts to help and protect others – it is amazing to see team Black Country pulling together!

Only by working together, building understanding of the impact across the different parts of our sector will we be able to mitigate the impact and progress with our shared work in the future.

Increasingly there is a lot of information to digest. We have amended our page to make it easier to identify and access the appropriate resource for you and your organisations, including:

  • Build understanding of the impact on the local sector.
  • Suggestions on how to be Active at home.
  • Black Country School Games Organisers to support PE at home.
  • Specific guidance on safeguarding – which has different considerations at this time.
  • Online support for coaches, volunteers and community and 3rd sector organisations and sport clubs.
  • Emergency Funding for clubs and organisations.

Please continue to follow the government’s guidance on how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, by reviewing the advice provided by the NHS
