We recognise that there is a strong relationship between faith and ethnicity. Faith Centres/places of worship engagement can be a unique opportunity to engage with inactive and underrepresented groups in Sport & Physical activity across the Black Country.
Consultation with partners and wider stakeholders has determined gaps in knowledge around understanding behaviours, size/scale, facilities and interest in health-related opportunities in places of worship but with a clear need to build this understanding.
We are collating a directory through our own knowledge and in collaboration with partners to ascertain the gaps, opportunities, challenges and learnings in connecting faith centres.
