Sport England Economic Impact of Sport - Local Model

Subject Keywords: Economic value of sport
Topic: Obesity
Type: Tool
Region: England

All local authorities in England can now demonstrate how sport benefits their economy using our new Economic value of sport – local model.  The model produces area based (local authority, county sport partnership and local enterprise partnership) estimates on sports’ contribution to the local economy in the form of business output (GVA) and jobs plus wider benefits like health. The model also allows you to refine some of the results by using local information you may have available. In addition you can begin to assess the impact of sport investments too – for example, what additional economic value is created as a result of an increase in participation in your area.  Guidance is provided on how to navigate the model and the best use of this evidence as one part of making the case for retaining or securing additional investment in sport.  To find out more and access the tool please register here.
