Sport Impact are key active partners in Hounslow’s Community Sport and Physical Activity Network (CSPAN). Through this we support community initiatives and help provide a school focus for any local physical activity based projects that involve young people. In addition we have supported many CSPAN bids for funding and projects and helped to deliver these on the ground. A good example of the is The Generations Active BFH programme the Hounslow arm of the Laureas Model City initiative which our Partnership Director, Alan Watkinson chairs.
In addition we work with the CSPAN to support and advise on the local Physical Activity Strategy.
We work closely with London Sport and GLA partners as well as with many other community based groups such as The Harlequins Foundation and Brentford FCCST.
Sport Impact are working with key partners to bring their experience and dedication to quality to the holiday club market.
Members of staff leading on this have extensive experience in this area and we aim to utilise this to particularly benefit those children who would benefit most from a holiday camp experience.
Key focus of the camps will be on creating an enjoyable experience with plenty of physical activity, sports and games. Ensuring that children have fun meeting the Chief Medical Officers recommended 60 minutes a day of activity and enjoying a healthy nutritional meal in the middle of the day.
In addition we will utilise our partnership with Teach Active to introduce lots of educational active games that will enhance the children’s understanding of relevant Maths and English core skills for their age group.
Please watch this space for further developments.
