About This Report:

Sported sought to find a sector-wide method of demonstrating the relationship between sport and social benefits. At the outset the organisation wanted to understand the impact of the Sport for Development sector and the cost saving being made to society. The outcome is a sophisticated IT system which assesses the impact and societal cost saving of seven of the most prolific social policy outcome areas: reducing anti-social behaviour and youth offending; improving educational performance; improving attendance and behaviour at school; reducing the misuse of drugs and alcohol; improving psychological health and wellbeing; increasing physical fitness and reducing obesity; reducing the number of NEET young people.
