The Big Lottery Fund

Focus more on regeneration and facility building due to investment profit
These were the driving force of London 2012
Private sector involvement usually results in increased jobs and training, improving local skills in coaching, volunteering and sports administration

Sports development in practice
These are schemes and initiative linked to local community plans. These are of strategic importance to local councils
Local sports development providers
will work throughout the borough to create targeted and sports specific programmes
National governing bodies
These may provide sports development to individuals who are talented, or may provide umpiring and refereeing courses
These are supported by many agencies and funding bodies to help them develop and become sustainable
Examples include local councils assisting in identifying funding for schemes in voluntary sector sports clubs, parish councils and village halls, and district councils offering financial assistance to support communities in providing facilities, equipment and services for sports and recreation.
Many councils work with a wide range of organisations to create sports related strategies. These organisations include the youth offending team, sure start, connexions, the primary care trust and healthy living centers.
Sports development schemes are usually at the heart of this as the deliverers and co-ordinators.
Areas of work
Target groups - Specific groups pf people who will benefit most from an initiative
Sport specific - Individual sports that would benefit from a boost
Location - the closer this is to the target group the more successful the scheme will be. This has to take in to account the facilities within the location
Effectiveness and efficiency
A scheme or initiative must highlight that they give value for money and make good use of resources.
They must also be efficient, due the recession.
Accounting for all expenditure and showing real benefit for the participants is essential for sports development officers.
Officers must be skilled at writing funding bids as this underpins initiatives
