The Essex grassroots sport and physical activity sector is large and dynamic. There is a significant volunteer base who are passionate, dedicated and inspire people to be active for years. Covid-19 has severely tested the resilience of our community sports clubs and organisations, and they have risen to the challenge magnificently.
As we recover and rebuild, we need to listen, learn, and better understand our communities. Our sport and physical activity sector can play a key role in tackling inequalities and reaching a wider audience.
Clubs and coaches, both voluntary and paid are at the heart of our Essex wide sport and physical activity delivery so it is vitally important that they have the support and skills to deliver an engaging sport and physical activity offer to their participants.
