Backed by government and key agencies such as Sport England, we are building a recognised and respected profession for everyone working sport, fitness and physical activity.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested

  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better
