Sport Across Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent

Working together to create active places and healthy lives through sport and physical activity” 

Sport Across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent is a partnership of agencies “working together to champion participation, enjoyment and success through sport, physical education and physical activity”.

We are part of an England wide network of 44 County Sports Partnerships.

Through our partnership approach County Sports Partnerships are uniquely positioned to support the development of sport, PE and active recreation. We aim to help grow participation; sustain current participants and help those with talent excel in sport. Our work supports a wide range of agendas that increased participation in sport and active recreation can have a positive benefit on. Agendas include health & wellbeing, economic prosperity, community development and community safety.

We are funded by national and local partners including Sport England, our Local Authorities and Universities.
