The Sport and Recreation Alliance (SRA) – UK

United Kingdom

The Sport and Recreation Alliance believes that the power of sport and recreation can change lives and bring communities together. Together with their members and in partnership with the wider sector, they make the most of opportunities and tackle the areas that provide a challenge.

The Alliance has over 300 members drawn from across the sport and recreation sector. The Alliance provides advice, support and guidance to our members, who represent traditional governing bodies of games and sport, regional sports bodies, outdoor recreation, water pursuits, and movement and dance exercise and the wider sector.

As the voice of the sector, the Alliance works with Government, policy makers and the media to make sure sport and recreation grows and thrives. Having an active nation is important as it delivers huge benefits to society and the millions of participants, volunteers, staff and spectators.
