Sign up and join the Movement

When you sign up to the Sport for Development Coalition, you are joining the Movement of organisations who endorse and adopt its Charter. This means that you will:

  1. Actively demonstrate, and advocate for the intentional use of sport and/or physical activity to generate positive social outcomes. Our purpose is to drive social change through sport, over and above activation and participation.
  2. Be open to working in collaboration with other organisations (sport and non-sport) to achieve common objectives and shared outcomes.
  3. Collect, build and share evidence of what works, and what doesn’t, when using sport and/or activity for positive social outcomes.  
  4. Commit to positively engaging with the Coalition and its activities, supporting the empowerment and capacity-building of others in order to broaden the Movement’s collective impact.
  5. Commit to building a diverse pool of talent that reflects, and is representative of society. This should relate to all areas of your work, including your workforce, your participants and your delivery partners.
  6. Help to develop and use a common language and wider understanding of Sport for Development especially amongst other key sectors such as health and criminal justice. Where necessary, this will draw on relevant frameworks such as the DCMS Sporting Future strategy or the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  7. Subscribe to the principle of a two-way relationship with the Coalition where you both offer and have access to support, knowledge, experience, services and opportunities.
