Latest CSN Articles

From this point on, the Community Sport Network team will no longer be sending out articles.

It was established in August 2013 as a free to access news-line on all things happening in Community Sport. It was set up as a small contribution to the legacy of London 2012 which inspired us all and will live long in our memories.

Nearly five years down the track there are now a number of other respected sporting news offerings online, so we thank you for your readership and support which has extended to over 200 countries, and wish you all well in your ongoing efforts to help create a fitter, healthier sporting nation.

Thanks for being a part of it!

MOVEs: how being more active makes you more healthy

How being active makes you more healthy - the tool that proves it!
Sport England are Launching a new tool that helps you work out the economic and health benefits of sport and activity.

At a click, MOVES lets you compare groups of people who play sport or are active against people who are not.

It can compare different types of activity, estimating how much the risk of key diseases – like cardiovascular disease and diabetes – has been lowered for those who do play sport.

The tool also shows you the economic benefits when people's health is improved by being active.


MOVES is able to estimate the value of an existing or planned programme of activity and sport among a specific population group, and can also be used to:
Evaluate the cost-effectiveness of a sports programme where there are clear health outputs.
Find out which sports programmes work and what doesn’t, and why.
Measure the impact and results of sports programmes.
Demonstrate the return on investment for sports programmes.

The tool has at its heart the evidence that sport is important to people's health, alongside the wider social and economic benefits.

As well as the tool itself, there is a user guide to help you get the most from MOVES.
