Industrial Provident Society. Its main aim is to provide inspirational sport and recreational activities, as well as lifestyle coaching provision, across schools and local communities. Although based in Carlisle, its remit also extends across surrounding districts throughout Cumbria. In 2008, Carlisle was one of many districts across England to form a Sport and Physical Activity Alliance (SPAA) – also known as a Community Sports Network (CSN). Through a partnership approach involving public, private and voluntary sector organisations, its key aim – through signifi cant match capital and revenue funding from Sport England – was to develop new sporting opportunities, supporting new facilities and developing appropriate programmes to raise participation levels.

PROJECT Combating funding cuts


for sport and recreational activity provided through the local authority and the School Sports Partnership. Carlisle SPAA partnership therefore decided to use its remaining Sport England funding to appoint a development manager on a six-month contract, tasked with the following objectives: • To review existing programmes and establish the impact of imposed funding cuts, and try to attract suffi cient interest and funding to retain as many as possible. • To investigate the possibility of establishing a social enterprise or similar to work alongside the existing leisure trust (CLL).


On 31 January 2012, Carlisle & District SPAA Foundation was offi cially registered as a not-for-profi t Independent Industrial Provident Society. It currently has four full-time and six part-time employees – a development manager, three full-time community coaches and six casual coaches – and has retained the commitment of partner organisations concerned at the level of programmes that would be affected.


The foundation has secured its fi rst year running costs, with income streams through service delivery, fundraising, sponsorship, grants and partnerships totalling £175,000 for the fi rst fi nancial year, 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2013. It currently has 20 schools – around 2,000 children – involved in its sports coaching and/or U Can Shine Well Being programmes. Holiday sports activities are also offered at community centres across the Carlisle district, including a rural activity scheme. A health project in a deprived ward of Carlisle had 100 adult attendees in 2012, while a social inclusion programme across seven sites attracted 500 young people in 2012.
