NORTHAMPTONSHIRE SPORT 

Northamptonshire Sport works together with local and national partners to get people in Northamptonshire More Active, More Often. Our focus is on reducing inactivity levels particularly for those people who are least likely to be active and most likely to be affected by health inequalities.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending since inception
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy
  • Over half the Board have joined recently
