WORKING WITH COMMUNITIES​​​​​​​

Our plan

OUR SYSTEM APPROACH

One of Sport Northland's key strategic objectives is to enable “targeted systems to be connected and capable of delivering and sustaining participation opportunities that matter to their participants”.

We have defined that a (great) Northland play, active recreation and sport system is one that is connected and capable of delivering and sustaining participation opportunities that matter to their participants; an environment where stakeholders arrive at a shared understanding of how to work collaboratively and in doing so, concentrate resources and good practice on improving the quality of sport and recreation delivery across the region. 

The following national research and thinking arising from it are compelling reasons why Sport NZ is asking Regional Sports Trusts (like Sport Northland) throughout the country to focus on highly deprived, low socio-economic communities first, in order to have the biggest impact on participation.
