This page is all about one of our four goals for 2021-22 - keep reading, or go to our main year 1 implementation plan page.
Catalysts for change
Effective investment models
We’re committed to improving our investment approaches, so they’re relevant to the diverse organisations with a role to play in Uniting the Movement.
We’ll create a simpler and more efficient system to support our investment processes through a new Investment Management
System, which will be implemented by the autumn.
We’ll also develop a clear menu of investment approaches, plus simplified access to our open funding.
Realising the power of people and leadership
We’ll develop our organisation’s people and leadership by focusing on skills and competencies needed to deliver our strategy, alongside focused action on diversity and inclusion.
Our organisational values will be further embedded in the ways we work individually, collectively and externally. This will complement work with partners to co-produce and roll out leadership development across the sector.
Applying innovation and digital
We'll identify the critical opportunities for innovation and digital skills and capabilities that can be applied by both us and our partners, to maximise our collective impact on inequalities.
These will be prioritised in an iterative plan, which will help us to start to embed them into our everyday ways of working and to deliver our shared ambition.
High-quality data, insight and learning
We’re committed to identifying and prioritising the data, insight and learning needed to deliver Uniting the Movement, to help inform our decisions and shape what we do.
We’ll ensure we’re set up in the right way, both culturally and practically, so we can do this.
We’ll publish our refreshed Code for Sports Governance, which sets out the levels of transparency, accountability and financial integrity required from those who ask for government and National Lottery funding and is a crucial mechanism to drive improved leadership standards, diversity and cultural change through our sector.
A support package will also be launched in partnership with UK Sport to help funded partners meet its requirements.
Our other work
We'll also focus on these other important organisational changes:
Revise our organisational structure and ways of working
Ensure our capacity and resource is best placed to deliver our strategy
Integrate our strategy's guiding principles into everything we do
Our strategy is an evolution of what we do, and a revolution of how we do it. We’ll be guided by three principles:
- Investing most in those that need it most
- The right blend of national and local action
- Simple as standard.
