Inspiring Young People Through Sport
Here Francis Sealey interviews Peter Thomond, director of Innovation at Sport Inspired which promotes sports participation and adult volunteering. Peter took part in the GlobalNet21 event at The Gobal Summit last week and discussed the legacy of the Olympics and what needs to be done to make it real.
The dream of SportInspired is three-fold:
- to help everyone find a sport that inspires them: we believe there is a sport out there for everyone;
- to create the National Community Games: where communities up and down the country come together at least once a year to enjoy the community building benefits of grass roots sport;
- we’d love to see SportInspired teams in each major region of the UK: providing opportunities for young leaders to step up, young people to find a sport they love, community sports clubs to develop and businesses to support the communities in which they are based.
