Physical Activity & Sport Strategy 2017-2021

Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport (LRS) is a partnership of the local authorities of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland (LLR) working together with amongst others, schools, National Governing Bodies of Sport, clubs, coaches and volunteers. We have a shared commitment to enrich the lives of the residents of LLR by:

  • Getting more people to take part in physical activity and sport.
  • Improving our citizen's physical and mental well-being.
  • Developing our paid and unpaid workforce.
  • Creating a strong voice for physical activity and sport.
  • Building a physical activity and sport environment that is safe, fair and customer focused.

We want to be the most active place in England, building a healthy and vibrant future for our communities. If we achieve this, we will have been able to contribute to, transforming physical and mental wellbeing outcomes in the sub-region, supporting a stronger economy, and helping individuals and communities to achieve their potential in life. Despite the compelling evidence of the benefits not enough people across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland have developed a sustainable physical activity and sport habit.

Quest for Sports Development Assessment

We have achieved an "Excellent" rating in our recent (2016) Quest for Active Communities assessment. Formerly known as Quest for Sports Development, the process has recently been refreshed to reflect the Government and Sport England's increased emphasis on community and health outcomes. Quest is the sport and leisure industry's leading quality assurance scheme.

We were externally assessed across 12 core modules including People and Skill Development, Financial Management and Business Development, Increasing Participation and Reducing Inactivity and Event Management.

We were rated "Excellent" for 8 out of the 12 modules and the Quest report highlighted that the organisation enjoys a range of strengths. The report commented on the exceptional leadership, the effective business planning and the culture of innovation which enables the LRS team to demonstrate significant added value to the partnership.

In addition, the report stated that the LRS team are at ease working in partnerships and that their relationship management skills are excellent. Furthermore the Assessor referenced that projects and programmes are well managed and have high visibility.

John Byrne, the LRS Director said "This is a very positive outcome to what was a challenging process and real recognition for a job well done by our staff team and Board. However, we know there are areas where we can develop further and we will be collectively working hard to ensure that we continue to improve the services that we offer".
