Partnership approach to enabling sport for change – sharing learning and success from Active East programme

This is the title of the workshop given by Kirsty Partridge, Scottish Sports Futures Programme Manager at the Power of Sport conference. That takes place on 15th June 2016 at the Royal Society of Edinburgh and focuses on how Scotland’s community sports providers can benefit their communities and increase their impact.

This workshop will allow participants an opportunity to share in learning gained from Scottish Sports Futures’ unique approach to delivery, partnership working and community engagement with a particular focus on our award-winning legacy programme Active East. Inspiring young people to be more physically active and build skills through volunteering enables them to both develop as individuals and to help deliver programmes that benefit the communities in which they live. Delegates will hear from some of these young people and discover the journeys they have been on through involvement in the programme.

The workshop will culminate with some practical advice and experience on how bringing together the principles of youth work and sport has supported the development of a girl’s only Judo programme in collaboration with Youth Scotland and Judo Scotland as well as further developed our Education Through CashBack training programme.

Kirsty Partridge has worked for over a decade in the Sport for Change field. She is passionate about the role of youth work in successfully engaging young people through physical activity, and the significance this approach can have as the driver for positive personal development.
