We are pleased to share with you the notes from the recent club summit. This was an opportunity for clubs to engage with us and start to build a picture of the opportunities and areas for consideration for clubs in the future. We will continue to consult and communicate with clubs as we move into 2022. In the meantime, should any clubs wish to discuss any areas further please contact Geoff Caine geoff.caine@stevenage.gov.uk or myself louise@gallagher-smith.co.uk.

Made by Sport is a charity that raises awareness of the power of sport to change lives by supporting community organisations in the UK that use sport as a way to engage young people, and show how it can be of societal benefit to young people and their local communities.

 

From Coordinate Sport it’s The Drive Phase, a show about sports founders, leaders and experts, and the stories behind their business journeys.

 

Sophie established her career in fundraising, introducing young people to new environments and outdoor activities with The Outward Bound Trust.

 

Working with the British Olympic Association, successfully leading their fundraising across multiple Olympic Cycles including London 2012 and moving on to support other clients such as BBC Children in Need, she has established herself firmly in the social impact space.

 

Now CEO of Made By Sport, she is working hard to highlight the role that sports intervention can have on the lives of children across the country.
