Active Black Country Sector Skills Plan Brief

We have a passionate belief that physical activity and sport can improve people’s lives and that it is every residents’ right to be physically active and play sport.

The partnership’s ambition is to ‘create an active healthy region’ and enable our 318,000 inactive residents to be active. The partnerships enabling role is to understand the regions communities and people, connect and collaborate to align strategic priorities and influence policy, interventions and investment to get more residents active and realising the benefits of an active lifestyle.

Active Black Country understands that the scale and complexity of the challenge across the Black Country is significant and recognise we have to tackle the challenge through building a collective approach, realised through shared agendas, to create change at all levels and across many sectors.

Central to this is our approach to our focus on ‘people’ starting with our own organisation and then understanding the skills we need on the wider sectors, volunteer, coaching and professional workforce.

Covid-19 has had and will continue to have an impact on society but in particular the Sport & Physical Activity and Health & Wellbeing sectors. This will mean changing consumer behaviours, new business models and workforce requirements.

In 2017 we published a sector skills plan for Sport and Physical Activity and are now seeking an external consultant to work with us to undertake a refresh of the action plan based on clear demand led evidence-based approach.

This research and associated report will inform the emerging strategic planning and delivery of sport and physical activity across the Black Country.
