Social Benefits driven through the work of Carrington House
The Coaching Communities framework maps across social impact objectives, providing a rigour and connectivity with complementary health agendas that offer sustainable and compound growth for all beneficiaries. We look at how sport creates benefits for Employability that can be used in Apprenticeships, we measure how physical activity can improve your mental and physical health, and we also investigate how older members can live a more fulfilling life.
One of the essential aspects of this development programme is health and wellbeing as highlighted in A Sporting Future, that contributes to wider benefits for the local community, for participants, non-participants and partner organisations. Each component delivers benefits referred to in the sections below:
Aggregating all these different benefits provides the true Social Value that the funders will assess, as described in the Sporting Future 2015 reference above:
Key social groups that funders are keen to support are young people, women and older members of communities . Today’s young people present a different set of challenges from previous generations, in that research from the Youth Sport Trust indicates there is a growing problem in the very young. Addressing issues relating to obesity, diabetes ii, cancers and osteoporosis for young females, through more active lifestyles, can contribute significant additional income streams through increased day-time usage.
As cognitive function declines with advancing age, engaging with older members of the community has the capacity, to promote a physically active lifestyle and play an important role in reducing and potentially reversing declines, including Dementia. Whilst there is a profound moral justification for focusing on these social groups, accessing social investment for facilities, also creates a balanced programme through alternative groups needing access .
A successful community partnership will need to provide an elegant solution to addressing social challenges in an innovative way by generating a scalable format that will satisfy the requirements of community, business partners and social investors.
We provide an innovative approach to the development of community, focussing on the social impact generated, by a future-proofed sustainable health and wellbeing hub, operating as a social enterprise. This strategic direction continues to deliver the social benefits created, in line with the collective objectives of the community strategy.
