Value of Sport monitor

Our monitoring service provides up-to-date reference sources and critical reviews of research evidence on the contribution of sport to a range of social issues.

Arm yourself with the best possible evidence for decision-making. The Value of Sport Monitor keeps a critical eye on all the latest sports research.

Besides commissioning its own research on the value of sport, Sport England also works with others to collect and review data from across the world.

The aim is to bring together the latest evidence in an easy-to-use resource. This can aid policymakers in making sound decisions, and help practitioners deliver what works best.

The Value of Sport Monitor is a joint Sport England and UK Sport initiative, working with the University of Stirling.

 As well as gathering worldwide research, the initiative reviews its strengths and weaknesses, to offer the most informed picture.

The research is grouped into seven themes.
