The Centre discusses… How sport contributes to strong communities

29 September 2021


Wednesday 29 September, 10:00-11:00am

We will hear from Sport for Development Coalition and Cotman Housing Association about the contribution that sport and physical activity can make in strengthening communities and contributing to the positive social outcomes that housing associations seek, for example in these areas:

  • Education and employment
  • Anti-social behaviour and community safety
  • Health and wellbeing

Sport For Development Coalition will speak about the shared areas of focus for housing associations and Sport for Development organisations, and the evidence base and policy context in these areas.

Cotman Housing Association will speak about their experience of working with sport partners to delivering sport and physical activity interventions.


  • Ollie Dudfield, Executive Director of the Sport for Development Coalition
  • Nicky Galwey-Woolston, Projects and Supported Housing Manager at Cotman Housing Association
  • James Anderson, Project Coordinator at Cotman Housing Association
