Our Governance

Sports Partnership Herefordshire and Worcestershire trading as Active Herefordshire and Worcestershire is a registered charity (charity no. 1184297) and a company limited by guarantee (company no. 08822764) trading since 1st April 2015.

We have a board of 8 skilled, committed and enthusiastic board members along with a highly experienced and energetic team. We take our role as the local lead for Sport and Physical Activity seriously and ensure that our governance arrangements are in order.

Sport England's new Code for Sports Governance sets out the levels of transparency, accountability and financial integrity expected from sports bodies seeking public funding, of which we are one.

The code requires the following to be publicly available:

Our Diversity Action Plan is currently under review. In the meantime, we have been making improvements internally to support our approach to diversity, inclusion and equality. We have:

  • Appointed an internal working group to drive forward this work
  • Become a member of 'Inclusive Employers' which will provide access to training, webinars and support

Board minutes

Board minutes will be posted following each quarterly board meeting following approval from the Chair of the board.

Any questions relating to the Code of Sports Governance please contact Stephen Brewster, CEO.
