The Black Country BeActive Partnership is one of 49 County Sports Partnerships (CSPs) in England working to provide opportunities for people to participate in sport and physical activity across the Black Country.
The Black Country has a long and colourful history of sporting achievement, nurturing champions including Denise Lewis, Tessa Sanderson, Duncan Edwards and Eleanor Simmonds. Building on this heritage, sports provision in the area has evolved rapidly in recent years, with plans for even more top-class programmes and facilities in the near future.
The BeActive team and its partners aim to work together for all in the Black Country through PE Sport and Physical Activity to inspire a generation to be active. We have a set of core values and principles that are:
Needs-led - Driven by local needs of the whole community
Independence - Acting in the best interests of PE Sport and physical activity in the sub-region and not to allow personal or organisational agendas to dominate
Accountability - Making decisions and formulating policy in an efficient, inclusive, open, transparent manner
Excellence - Achieving high quality standards through continuous improvement and innovation
Equitable - Committing to equality (people and processes)
Impact - Demonstrating value for money and prioritising projects that have the potential of making the most impact
Integrity - Operating fairly and communicating consistently
We aim to:
- Increase and sustain participation in PE, Sport and Physical activity
- Develop the quantity and quality of the PE, Sport and Physical activity workforce needed to increase participation
- Support the development of progression pathways to ensure individuals reach their full potential in sport and physical activity
- Raise the profile of PE, Sport and Physical activity in the Black Country
