Our role is to provide:
Strategic Planning and Co-ordination
Identify the needs of the local community in order to promote active lifestyles and tackle barriers to participation. Interpret national and regional strategy to help shape local policy to best fit community needs, co-ordinating delivery to avoid duplication and to optimise the use of resources.
Raise the profile of sport and physical activity, increasing recognition of the wider values of sport and physical activity, and representing the interests and concerns of the sector. Be a legitimate voice for sport and physical activity in Bromley.
Broker and facilitate partnership working, making the whole greater than the sum of the parts. Improve communication and information sharing across the sector, including organising an annual sports forum.
Encourage sports clubs, community organisations and other partners to adopt minimum operating standards, such as Clubmark and other accreditations that promote continuous improvement, and support education and development courses for coaches, school teachers and volunteers.
Support and promote equality in sport and physical activity, providing opportunities for everyone. Encourage participation for all regardless of their age, ability, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, social or economic status.
Promote the safety and wellbeing of children, young people and adults at risk of harm when participating in sport and physical activity in Bromley.
Encourage and support the use and development of accessible sports and recreation facilities. Support the protection and enhancement of existing community sports facilities, including parks and open spaces.
