Supporting future policy and practice is a key role of the NASDC.
As a result, we work closely with a range of policy makers, leading practitioners, community organisations and academia to develop, test, evaluate best practice. We also advocate for the sector and are currently exploring a range of platforms that will consistently promote the impact from the sector along with the profile of sport for development.
This will also support NASDC in making the case for future investment and supporting additional investment into the sector.
Current impact headlines include:
- We are pleased MP Dr Phillip Lee has been reappointed as the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice after the 2017 General Election. We will continue working together to enhance the role of sport in youth justice.
- We have supported thought leadership for a range of senior stakeholders, such as the Ministry of Justice, Public Health England, Comic Relief, the National Sport for Development Coalition and the Commonwealth Secretariat.
- We will continue supporting HM Prison and Probation Service to review the role of sport and community partnerships in prisons across England and Wales.
- Supported by Sport England, we are launching our first project in partnership with StreetGames to identify the role of sport and community partnerships across youth justice.
