GreaterSport Research & Insight Work
Examples of Previous Work
Following the £56 million Lottery-funded National Sportivate Programme, GreaterSport Research and Insight team conducted a Sportivate Impact Report to demonstrate the value of the programme across Greater Manchester since 2011. For every £1 invested there was a £2.33 broad societal social return on investment over a 1 year period. The programme engaged over 56k individuals, 72% of which were retained across the 6-8 week programmes. Please see the link to download the full report to the right.

To demonstrate to funders the return on investment in one to one support can have we are currently conducting an in-depth evaluation into the impact of CADS (Children’s Able and Disabled Sports) on young people and their wider families for Seashell Trust.
£300k of funding for EFDS’s Get Out Get Active project within Greater Manchester was secured following the consultation we did with over 100 disabled people across Greater Manchester. This was to understand the opportunities they have to take part in sport and physical activity, along with their motivations and barriers to do so which was used to inform the development of the programme locally.
