Community Sports Programme
We began a five year community partnership with Arsenal Football Club in 2008 which ended in 2013 and was followed by a partnership agreement. This aims to promote and deliver a range of initiatives, including curriculum football, holiday activities, girls football and a Double Club; where school children in years five and six spend 45 minutes playing football and 45 minutes on literacy.
If you have any questions, please contact Helen Hopkins, 020 8207 7801 or email email@example.com

Community Sports Network (CSN)
What is a Community Sport Network (CSN)?
Sport England defines a CSN as a collection of people who have a desire to develop and promote sport and physical activity in their area. Representatives from local authorities, schools, sports clubs, sports centres, volunteer networks and wider community groups make up a Community Sports Network.
The core aims of all Community Sports Networks are to:
increase the number of people taking part in sport and active recreation by 1% year on year;
widen access to opportunities for sport and active recreation;
bring together and align partners' existing priorities and targets within one joined up local action plan for sport and active recreation within the CSN area, based upon the needs of the local communities and ensuring clarity in roles and responsibility.
