Infrastructure

The MAC partnership helps to support and improve the infrastructure behind sport in the county.

Suffolk Sport and Event Volunteering Project… Thousands of hours of volunteering given to hundreds of sporting events across Suffolk which in turn have helped thousands of people participate in and enjoy sport and physical activity.

Playing pitch and sports facility strategies… To support local authorities to meet the sporting needs of local communities through developing appropriate up to date and robust policies for sport, including playing pitch and facility strategies, so that they are well placed to ensure that informed planning, investment, management and sports development decisions are made. Suffolk is set to become the 1st county in England to have strategies in place across all local authorities.

 

Leadership Development programme… A programme of seminars and stakeholder events aimed at supporting and motivating organisations to further co-operate in designing, promoting and commissioning schools to develop financially sustainable operating models and programmes which improve the quality and consistency of service, drive participation in sport and physical activity, and demonstrate the value of community use to the education sector.

Opening school sports facilities to the community… A programme to broaden community access to sports facilities on school sites by supporting schools to develop financially sustainable operating models and programmes which improve the quality and consistency of service, drive participation in sport and physical activity and demonstrate the value of community use to the education sector.
