Social Legacy Planning
It is vitally important that every major event or project leaves a legacy and/ or sustainable activity. This product is specifically designed to support clients who want to ensure that their event or major project leaves a long term difference. If you need support on more general Sports Development please see the Sports Development Section.

We can help you look at all the social issues which can be tackled as a result of the Major Event Programme including Health, Social Deprivation, Young People, Economic Development & Business etc.

Training (Legacy & Sustainability)
When working with you and your team on any of our Legacy & Sustainability products, we are able to offer a training programme to run alongside the work to develop your programme. We can design a programme to meet you needs and will use both bespoke and courses already available through national programmes e.g. NASD etc.
Please see the Training Section for more details.

Monitoring & Evaluation – Legacy & Sustainability

It is important that any programme you develop has monitoring and evaluation built into the process. How do you know if you have a sustainable activity or, indeed, a Legacy has been left, without monitoring and evaluation of the activities you have undertaken?
We can help you both design you evaluation process and support you with the practical elements of delivering a monitoring and evaluation process.
See the main Monitoring & Evaluation Section for further details.
