Sport for Good Nottingham brought together an education community through sport for development. It aimed to build life and leadership skills in children and young adults and increase their engagement in making a difference through the delivery of sport for social action projects. The Programme brought together a coalition of education and community stakeholders in Nottingham to deliver activities, learn from the process and build a framework which could be replicated in other locations.
The Sport for Good University Toolkit was designed in partnership with the University of Nottingham Sport, local schools and community organisations to provide a useful model for other institutions to create their own programming. The University Toolkit is a simple, practical and interactive guide for developing a Sport for Good University project of your own.
Sport for Good Nottingham was the project the toolkit was based on. It aimed to ensure:
- Children had developed their life skills and confidence to successfully transition into secondary school
- Children had a positive experience of social action and wanted to volunteer in sport and physical activity related projects, clubs or programmes in the future
- Students improved awareness of and engagement with their local community to enable community based social action
- A coalition of partners were engaged to better understand effective delivery of programmes for social change through sport and created a framework for delivery in new locations
