Themed Briefing - November 2020

Cross-Organisation Collaboration; Team Work Makes The Dream Work

House of Sport firmly believes in the power of collaboration and that by working together, organisations can progress and really make a difference.

This month we present three organisations who have been working alongside other partners and reaching beyond their own limits to further support and grow the work they are doing.

Key to all of this is different organisations coming together to work towards a common goal, supporting one another and moving work on to achieve valuable results.

Activity Alliance 

England Manager for the Get Out Get Active (GOGA) programme, Helen Derby, takes us through the GOGA project that supports disabled and non-disabled people to be active together.

Helen talks about how the success of the programme has been achieved through collaborative working and the partnerships made through the network. Cross-organisational working with both strategic funding partners and local and national organisations has meant workforce diversity and an increased breadth of expertise.

Sport Tech Hub

Patrick Colbeck, Programme Manager of Sport Tech Hub chats to Holly Smith, Project Intern with London Sport, about the positive impact cross-organisation collaboration can have on tech start-ups.

They discuss how partnerships can amplify profiles and help new businesses reach a wider audience as well as the benefits of working outside of the sector you are involved in to gain a new perspective.
