What is a County Sports Partnership (CSP)?

Sport England invest in 43 County Sports Partnerships (CSPs) covering every part of England. CSPs are a network of organisations which a strong understanding of their local place. CSPs can broker and support the right relationships, and help identify the best opportunities to increase sport and physical activity in their communities.

CSPs will think about what's important based on local needs, and use their understanding to be tactical in creating chances to get active which achieve the health, social and economic outcomes in the governing's Sporting Future Strategy.
