Manifesto - Labour First Out of the Blocks

So, we are just over three weeks away from the surprise general election and the Party manifestos are being produced this week. The first to be launched was Labour on the 16th May in Bradford. Of course, we have been eagerly awaiting the policy announcements here at the Sports Think Tank.

Increasing Pressure on the basic foundations of Sport & Recreation?

The last few stories we have covered this week at the Think Tank point to a bleak future for the very foundations of sport, recreation and physical activity in the UK. Reports about the dominance of public schools in the make up of Team GB, school sport pressures and cuts to our Public Parks all point to increasing pressure on our system.

The Future for School Sport and PE

As the nation continues to reflect on the success of Team GB in the Olympics and the Paralympics attention is returning to School Sport and PE as we head into the new term. The news over the summer in the long awaited Obesity strategy that schools would play a crucial role in delivering greater levels of Physical Activity were certainly welcomed.

Europe and Sport Policy

It has been a long and often acrimonious European Referendum campaign which thankfully comes to an end on Thursday. The ramifications of the vote however will last a lot longer whatever the result.

Throughout most of the campaign sport has not really played a huge part and it hardly likely that many people will be making a decision on Thursday 23rd June based on the outcome for sport alone.

As an Independent Think Tank we have tried to stimulate a little thinking around the big ticket issues.

Collaborative Leadership

As the Sport England Strategy consultation starts to take shape as a consequence of the Government launch of "Sporting Future - A new strategy for an Active Nation" it is time to take stock of how the sector is responding and will take up the new challenges posed by these opportunities and threats to the current state of play.
