1 Active Guildford Sport Development Strategy Our plan to enhance sports provision and engage all our community in sport so that by 2021, Guildford will be one of the most active boroughs in South East England.

2 Active Guildford, Sport Development Strategy Foreword I am delighted to present our Sport Development Strategy This document sets out our intention to raise the profile of sport within the borough of Guildford in order to benefit our community over the next five years. As Lead Member for Community Health and Sport, I recognise that participation in sport brings valuable health and lifestyle benefits to our community, whilst providing a valuable economic tool for the borough. Guildford already has a positive reputation for providing high quality places to play sport and access to high standards of sports coaching. Our community s sporting habits are consistently higher than the national average and the health of our borough is generally good with most residents benefiting from higher than average life expectancy. Welcome Councillor Iseult Roche Lead Member for Community Health and Sport However, I believe we could achieve more in our borough to ensure sports participation among all residents regardless of age or ability. According to Sport England statistics, 50% of our community do not participate in sport and 22% of our population are currently inactive, participating in less than 30 minutes of sport or physical activity a week. Public Health England (PHE) has launched Everybody Active, Every Day, a framework for national and local action to address the national physical inactivity epidemic. Alternative Formats If you would like to read this consultation document in a different format such as large print, please contact Leisure Services. n Telephone: n The Guildford Sport Development Strategy and the Guildford Health and Wellbeing Strategy will align with this agenda to: s target those who are less active through sport and physical activity s encourage those who are already participating to stay active We also want to support our sports providers to improve existing facilities and maximise the opportunity to upskill our coaches and volunteers. We will do this in consultation with our community and key stakeholders, facilitating key partners to drive strategy outcomes. There are four key themes within our strategy that mirror national policy outcomes and target local need. I would like to thank our stakeholders, residents and sports users in Guildford for helping to shape our strategy and I look forward to working with you to ensure our strategy delivers against set targets

3 Active Guildford, Sport Development Strategy Executive Summary Our Sport Development Strategy is the overarching plan that sets out how our vision and priorities will focus future outcomes to shape the strategic direction of sport for our community. The overall aim of our Sport Development Strategy is to improve the health and wellbeing of the community in which we live and work through participation in sport. We will align with national policy relating to the physical inactivity epidemic by: Welcome s focussing on ensuring sport is available to all, using a targeted approach towards those who are less active s linking with the Guildford Health and Wellbeing Strategy, using informal sport to tackle our community s inactivity levels s further improving the quality of our clubs, coaches and volunteers to continually raise standards and access to sport provision in the borough. According to Sport England s national statistics, Guildford is a consistently active borough with 43% of our community meeting the national measurement for participation in sport (at least 30 minutes per week). This is higher than the Surrey average (42%) and our neighbouring boroughs of Waverley and Woking (41%). However, 22% of adults are inactive and only 20% of over 55 s and 19% of disabled people in Surrey are participating in regular sport. In addition, females and those from black and minority ethnic (BME) groups are participating less than men and white residents respectively. In response to national policy and local need our four themes are: Participation Inclusive Sport Workforce Places Our strategy will be directed by national policy and will engage stakeholders to form partnerships to direct outcomes over the next five years. Our consultation process included three main areas; an online survey for residents, focus group resident workshops and a key stakeholder engagement event. The results have been collated to form the final strategy. Informal sport sessions are low cost, low commitment, sociable, accessible and focus on health benefits

Glossary Contents / 1. Introduction 1. Introduction Our Sport Development Strategy dovetails with our Corporate Plan and sets out how we intend to improve the health and wellbeing of the community in which we live and work through participation in sport. Over the next five years, we intend to raise the profile of sport, promoting the health benefits of an active lifestyle and widening access to quality sport provision. Why do we need a Sport Development Strategy? s to raise the profile of sport within our borough to benefit our community s to use informal sport as a preventative means of tackling inactivity levels s to align sport provision with the Guildford Health and Wellbeing Strategy and National Public Health Agenda s to identify opportunities to focus the development of sport as identified by our community and organisations s to pool resources and facilitate partnership working between organisations s to support our clubs, coaches and volunteers What will our strategy provide? s a five year resource to support the strategic direction of sport s a resource to help our local organisations access funding s an underpinning action plan that specifically drives development outcomes s a local working group to drive the development outcomes and set action plan targets How we will measure development? s by establishing Active Guildford, a working group of partners that will create and drive strategic targets. Active Guildford will meet three times a year to establish targets and report against progress. The action plan for year one, (), has been finalised and the action plan for year two will be drafted by Active Guildford partners during year one. The same process will continue for the remaining years. s Active Guildford will be supported by the Sport Development Officer who will report to the Guildford Borough Council Project Board consisting of Senior Management and Councillors

5 Active Guildford, Sport Development Strategy Involving our community We consulted on the first draft of our strategy with our community and key stakeholders via three methods; a stakeholder consultation evening, an online survey for residents and two focus group workshops, one with residents aged over fifty and another with residents with disabilities. We have used the following results to create the strategy Action Plan. Key results include: 2.1 Online public consultation According to our survey respondents, what would enable our community to start or re-engage with sport? access to cheaper sports sessions 96% 92% sessions being held in their 89% 67% local area The most popular sports among those who were participating at leastonce x 30 mins a week included: Swimming Cycling Running Tennis Fitness of respondents indicated they were 39% a member of a sports club 26% improved awareness of opportunities targeted sessions for people of an equal ability / standard volunteered at a sports club or similar. 2.2 Focus group consultation Access Many felt free taster sessions, pay and play concepts and bring a friend for free initiatives would be more helpful than paying in advance. The groups suggested this should be made more available to allow more people to take part by removing some of the cost and social barriers. Training Training for sports coaches and leisure provider staff in relation to adapting sessions and equipment to meet individual disability / need is a priority. Promotion A variety of promotional channels were mentioned including the more traditional routes such as newspapers, magazines, (over 50 s), GP surgeries and medical professionals but also less obvious channels like the Guildford Community Warden e-newsletters and organised networks (for disabled organisations). Informal sport products Once further information was given about informal sport products available to residents in the borough, most attendees were very positive about the initiatives and welcomed the opportunity to get involved. 2. Involving our community 81% of online respondents agreed that high quality sports coaching was offered within the borough. 81% 80% 80% of online respondents were satisfied with the sports provision in the borough. (When 18.8% of residents who did not have an opinion were removed)

6 Active Guildford, Sport Development Strategy Stakeholder consultation The predominant successes mentioned by sports clubs and organisations included increased membership and sustained participation, grant funding success and local effective partnerships. The predominant challenges mentioned included engaging new participants and sustaining memberships. Other challenges included the availability of indoor facilities, quality of local facilities, fundraising difficulties, building partnerships and available workforce. The core service areas seen as stakeholder priorities included: s support and advice for funding applications and development plans s increasing the number of Clubmark clubs working with local schools Local organisations most want support for funding applications and development plans. s sharing best practice and updates from regional and national partners s identifying gaps in leisure centre programming where provision can be improved There was also a suggestion of a new priority to help clubs access school facilities for their use. 2. Involving our community 2.4 Our themes It was encouraging to see that the support towards each of the themes via the online survey was high. This was mirrored in the stakeholder consultation and the focus groups, although inclusive sport and participation were seen as the most important by the latter. Feedback in relation to the Focus sports theme indicated that stakeholders felt this theme could alienate smaller National Governing Bodies of sport and is positioned alongside funding, premises and development as opposed to being a stand-alone theme. Feedback from stakeholders and the online survey revealed that the Pathways theme was not seen to be significant enough to be a stand-alone theme. There were concerns regarding potential duplication with the development work of National Governing Bodies of sport and questions as to whether elite sport development was a major area of development for the local authority. Please see Appendix 2 for a more detailed overview of all the consultation results. Overall levels of agreement towards the inclusion of each of the Sport Development Strategy themes. Participation 95.6% Workforce 92.4% Inclusive Sport 91.8% Places 91.7% Focus sports 84.0% Pathways 81.4% Agree

7 Active Guildford, Sport Development Strategy Our borough Guildford has the second highest population in Surrey with 139,700 residents (2012). In terms of economy, our borough is mostly affluent and benefits from low unemployment. The borough s affluence can in part be accounted for by the population s participation and consumption of sport, (Appendix 5, Sport England s Local Profile of Guildford: the economic value of sport). However, there are less advantaged areas including the wards of Westborough and Stoke which are two of the most disadvantaged areas in Surrey, (see Appendix 4 for further statistics relating to both wards). The Guildford population is set to significantly increase over the next two years, nearly twice the predicted rate for South East England. The overall increase of 9.4% will largely be within our over-50 population, demonstrating our ageing population, (see Appendix 3 for full breakdown of population demographics in Guildford). (Statistics sourced from Active People Survey 7, 2013 and Survey 8, 2014.) For more information on the health and activity levels within the borough, see Appendix 5: Sport England s profile of Guildford or go to Sport England s local area research tools. However, some groups are participating less than the general population: According to Sport England research: 65% of adults (16+) report undertaking the recommended amount of weekly physical activity, compared to the national average of 56%. This recommendation is based on the Chief Medical Officer s definition of at least 150 minutes per week in bouts of at least 10 minutes, (Public Health England, October 2014). 3. Our borough How healthy is our community? Guildford is mostly a healthy borough where most of our residents enjoy well above average life expectancy. The most popular sports for adults in Guildford are: People living in Stoke, Ash Wharf, Westborough, and Ash South/Tongham are less active than those living in other wards, (Appendix 6: Sport England s local area estimate of Guildford). Swimming Cycling Football Athletics Females and those from black and minority ethnic groups are participating less than men and white residents respectively, (Sport England Local Sport Profile Tool). Only 20% of over 55 s and 19% of disabled people in Surrey are participating in regular sport, (Sport England Local Sport Profile Tool). 22% of adults in Guildford are inactive, of adults are inactive, currently taking less than 30 minutes of physical activity per week. 56% of adults who are inactive, want to take part in sport, demonstrating that there is an opportunity to increase participation, (Appendix 5: Sport England Guildford Profile). (Sport England Active People Survey 7, 2013)

8 Active Guildford, Sport Development Strategy How involved is our community? Guildford benefits from a variety of high quality places to play sport. In addition to local leisure centres, private health clubs, playing fields, school sports centres and open spaces, there are over two hundred sports clubs in Guildford, of which, 51 are Clubmark Accredited. Clubmark accreditation is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports clubs and demonstrates that a club is adhering to safeguarding practices, workforce qualifications and community programme delivery. According to the Sport England Active People Survey 7 (2013), the number of residents who belong to a sports club in Guildford is higher than the national average. This is also the case for the number of residents who are satisfied with the sporting provision in the area. Participation in sports volunteering is in-line with the national average. To see percentages go to Appendix 5, Sport England s Profile of Guildford. 4. The Bigger Picture Our Sport Development Strategy will seek to contribute to national, regional and local sport development plans to ensure our targets align with wider outcomes. The strategies listed below will help shape our strategy in terms of where, when and how we encourage our community to participate in sport. National Direction A Strategy for Sport is the Department of Culture, Media and Sport s (DCMS) new draft consultation strategy that highlights ten proposed themes reflecting the headline issues to be addressed. The DCMS recognise that the existing plan to increase sports participation since London 2012 has exhausted its potential for growth. A new approach is needed that reflects the social, financial, attitudinal and technological realities of the time. Final strategy to be launched in Spring Creating a Sporting Habit for Life is Sport England s youth and community strategy. This outlines a commitment to invest over 1 billion of National Lottery and Exchequer funding between 2012 and 2017 in organisations and projects that will help more people create a sporting habit for life. Everybody Active, Every Day is Public Health England s framework for national and local action to address the national physical inactivity epidemic which currently costs the country an estimated 7.6 billion a year. 4. The Bigger Picture National Governing Body Whole Sport Plans detail how Sport England investment will be used to increase the number of people playing sport once a week and to nurture talent. Sport England recognise over a hundred National Governing Bodies and specifically funds 46 to deliver target orientated plans. UK Sport strategically invest National Lottery and Exchequer income into Olympic and Paralympic Sport. To ensure that the UK s most talented athletes have every chance of realising their full potential, UK Sport has created the World Class Programme. County Direction Our borough falls within the Surrey County Sport Partnership, Active Surrey. The team at Active Surrey are responsible for bringing together national policy and local partners to deliver shared outcomes to get more people active every day. Surrey Physical Activity Strategy 2015 to 2020 focuses on closing the participation gap by reducing the number of residents who are inactive and increasing the numbers meeting the recommended amount of physical activity, as set by the Chief Medical Officer. Within the Surrey Physical Activity Strategy, physical activity includes; recreational walking and cycling, active travel, dance, fitness, informal and competitive sport. The Guildford Sport Development Strategy will link to the Surrey Physical Activity Strategy by targeting those residents who are less active than our general community as part of our proposed Participation and Inclusive Sport themes

9 Active Guildford, Sport Development Strategy Local Direction Guildford Borough Council s Corporate Plan outlines five fundamental themes that support the vision and outcomes for the development of Council services within the borough. Our Sport Development Strategy will contribute to the Society theme, to promote sporting opportunities that engage residents and contribute to wider health and wellbeing outcomes. Guildford Health and Wellbeing Strategy outlines the current health profile of the borough and proposes the areas of focussed development in order to reduce premature deaths and health inequalities in Guildford. The desired outcomes are to reduce the number of physically inactive adults in Guildford and increase the number of people achieving the recommended amount of physical activity. Specific targets have been set by the Strategy Board and are reflected in the Physical Activity Action Plan (Appendix 7) and progress will be measured against the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) indicators. How it all fits together NATIONAL UK Sport National Governing Bodies of Sport Department of Culture Media and Sport Sport England Department of Health Public Health England 4. The Bigger Picture The Sport Development Strategy will align with the Health and Wellbeing Strategy outcomes so that opportunities for our community to participate in both sport and physical activity are widened. We will focus on using sport and physical activity to increase participation within our community, those who are less active.
