National governing bodies

We invest in and provide a range of services to national governing bodies to encourage more people to play sport and be physically active.

To help the sports sector continue to improve and evolve, we share our expertise to help our colleagues, partners and stakeholders improve the way they govern sports. 

We also support national governing bodies (NGBs) by establishing frameworks that make it easier for them to access specialist services, and often act in a consultancy role on areas including commercial, innovation and programme development.

Knowledge Hub

The Knowledge Hub is a platform that we use to share knowledge and best practice, and to encourage collaboration across NGBs and other professional entities that receive core market funding from us.

Access to the site is therefore currently restricted to organisations that receive our core market funding. If you’re unsure whether your organisation has access to the site, please email us at

The Knowledge Hub features the following: 

  • Forum: for discussions topics and action groups 
  • Library: archive of helpful documents and case studies
  • Events: placeholders for your calendar
  • Wiki: useful web links to other resources
  • Members: lets you connect with your peers.

Please note that we manage and moderate access to the site. 

Code for Sports Governance
