Sport England share resources to help the sport and physical activity sector reopen

The published resources will help plan for a safe return and support the sector to keep staff, volunteers, members and participants informed of their responsibilities around social distancing and hygiene, and will work alongside both existing and forthcoming government guidance.

The resources, which are in addition to the insight and hygiene guidance they have already published, include:

  • inclusion and accessibility guidance – helping you to understand who can get active, how you can engage specific audiences and how to ensure your facilities are, and remain, accessible to all when allowed to reopen.
  • support for the professional workforce – including advice on staffing considerations for paid works as well as support available.
  • volunteering guidance – setting out some of the main considerations to help your volunteers return safely, well-informed and prepared.
  • managing liability and risk guidance – to give providers, be they clubs, governing bodies, community groups or regional associations, advice on what issues need considering and how they might tackle them in order to safely return to play.
