Elite Sport Funding

UK Sport has published a consultation on elite sports funding and I would encourage all club members to respond well before the consultation closes on 19 August.

The survey takes 15-20mins of multiple choice question feedback. My own thoughts are that funding for sport is welcome but elite sport funding by UK Sport should not only be confined to Olympic sports; a wider range of sports should be supported. Indeed, athletes winning medals in all sports inspire others.

Members taking an active role in this survey will be helping to shape our sport for the future and may be helping generations after us to get the benefits from orienteering that we have been fortunate to have had access to.

The consultation can be found via the link below:
