The Sport, Leisure and Olympics Service consists of three main strands – Kent Sport (the
Sports Service, incorporating the County Sports Partnership for Kent), the Kent Campaign
for the 2012 Games and a wider involvement in Leisure provision through strategic projects.
The two main purposes of the service are:

   (a) To provide the strategic lead for and co-ordinate the development of sport and
       physical activity through strategic alliances/partnerships;

   (b) To ensure that Kent derives the maximum benefit and long-term legacy from the
       London 2012 Games and other major events.

                                       Legal Framework

The provision of sports services by local government is a permissive power. The
government encourages local authority involvement in sport and physical activity through
the government’s Legacy Plan for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Places, People,
Play) and a new Physical Activity Plan, through which sports’ contribution to health,
community safety, education, economic regeneration, community cohesion and pride in
one’s locality is acknowledged. More recently the new Coalition Government has endorsed
and supported Sport England’s National Strategy for Sport and has introduced a new
national school sport competition initiative.
The discretionary service supports the County Council’s work in a number of statutory
functions, such as the provision of education, services to young people, strategic planning
and services to disabled and vulnerable people. Also, the sports service supports other
discretionary work in economic development, supporting business, regeneration, health
improvement and supporting the Third/Voluntary sector.
The service also has a key role to support Kent County Council’s work to support
independence in targeted wards.
The Education and Inspections Act 2006 (Section 6) also requires local authorities to secure
(so far as is reasonably practicable) sufficient educational and recreational leisure time
activities, and sufficient facilities for such activities, for improving the well-being of those
aged 13-19 (or up to 24 in the case of those with learning difficulties). The responsibility for
the duty comes under the local authority working within the context of the Children's Trust.
The duty includes sports training, coaching, leadership and activity programmes, out-of-
school hours activity and information services. Other changes to Education provide
additional challenges but also opportunities, as does the Social Impact Bond, which the
Government plans to introduce to create opportunities for private / commercial investors to
invest into social outcomes.
Furthermore, a new Public Health White Paper provides the County Council with a
responsibility for Public Health locally and the opportunity to commission sport and physical
activity providers to meet local health outcomes.

Central government and the Local Government Association are encouraging local
authorities to work to ensure their areas derive maximum benefit from the London 2012
Olympic and Paralympic Games. Kent County Council is one of five Authorities to have
achieved Beacon Status for its work in securing legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and
Paralympic Games and therefore, has a key role to play in driving this work and sharing
best practice nationally.

                               Planning Context and Priorities

Bold Steps for Kent.
Sport, Leisure and Olympics will contribute across each of the three main “Ambitions” to
support the local economy and Kent Business; to tackle disadvantage and to support the
Voluntary and Third Sector. Specifically, the Service will:

      support sport and leisure business with advice and seek external funding to support
       facility developments and events which assist in regenerating communities; develop
       links with business for mutual benefit and support business to win 2012 contracts;

      provide opportunities for people, including disabled people, to participate in sport and
       physical activity and contribute to tackling health inequalities; This will include
       managing the Kent School Games on behalf of the County Council and co-ordinating
       structures and programmes in disability sport;

      co-ordinate sports education programmes to develop skills, entrepreneurship and
       employability amongst local residents, including young people. Build capacity within
       the Third/Voluntary sector and strengthen the fabric of Kent’s societies, through
       supporting Governing Bodies of Sport, clubs, coaches and volunteers;

      co-ordinate the County Council’s work on the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games,
       to ensure that business and tourism, education, young people, local communities,
       volunteers/ the voluntary sector, cultural partners and sport benefits from the
       opportunities that this “once in a lifetime” event provides. In 2011/12 greater
       emphasis will be placed on addressing the preparation for the year 2012 itself,
       including the deployment of volunteers, public safety, the Olympic Torch Relay, the
       “badging” of the county, information services, and transport.

   Securing Beacon Status for KCC for its work in Olympic and Paralympic Legacy, has
   created additional demand on the team to share good practice with other organisations
   and authorities. In 2011/12 increased emphasis will be given to the Local Leadership,
   Local Legacy programme, concerning using the 2012 Games to address health
   inequalities. This will include the benchmarking of 2012 related work with other local

   The Service also contributes with Kent Children’s Trust partners to the local Children &
   Young Peoples’ Plan, particularly the objectives below:

          o Respond to the opportunity of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to
            inspire Children and Young People to take part in a range of opportunities
          o Increase access to physical activity including sports in school and colleges
            and after school clubs especially for those aged 11-18

External influences are related to the funding, terms and conditions, policy changes and
monitoring arrangements of external agencies such as Sport England, since the Service
also contains several externally funded staff. As referred to earlier, the new national school
sports competition will be rolled out, which the Service is keen to see integrated with the
existing Kent School Games. Kent will be delivering one of nine national pilots for the
English School Sport Competition in June 2011. Additionally, the new Public Health White
Paper is likely to influence the service’s work in developing sport and physical activity
opportunities with local providers.

Sport England has confirmed its commitment to the “County Sports Partnership” element of
the service and managing new programmes of work will be included as a requirement of the
new funding agreement. Staff will continue to support National Governing Body work in the
County, linking with local school and district level community sport structures.

The Service will also need to take account of rapidly changing external national, regional
and local influences in relation to the County Council’s work on the 2012 Olympic and
Paralympic Games.

Medium Term Financial Plan Arrangements

      The service is receiving some additional funding for Pre-Games Training Camps in
       2011-12 and will be increasing its efforts to attract teams to train in Kent prior to the
       2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, with a view to develop long-term links in sport,
       tourism and economic activity;
      The service is receiving funding towards the Open Golf Championships in Sandwich
       in 2011 and will be working with partners in Dover, Canterbury and Thanet in
       particular to ensure Kent benefits from these Championships;
      The service will receive reduced levels of funding related to developing physical
       activity (a previous Towards 2010 target) and will subsequently need to reduce its
       work in this area or seek alternative sources of funding.


The business objectives set out in this plan are monitored to ensure they will be delivered.
Risks associated with potential non-delivery, and the controls in place to mitigate those
risks, have been assessed and documented as part of the annual operating plan process. A
risk plan has been developed as necessary.

The specific Business Risks to the Service are as follows:

      Budget savings required across the authority will present a challenge to the Service.
       The Service will continue to seek out savings with as minimal impact on activity as

      The current loss and potential future loss of local networks and partners, such as
       School Sports Partnerships, which could impact upon the Service’s ability to deliver
       the Kent School Games and the national school sports competition at the same scale
       and quality as in previous years. The Service will seek to work with other networks
       such as School Sports Associations or other providers to ensure the impact is
       minimised or seek out new external delivery structures

      External funding – due to the current economic climate there are fewer sources of
       external funding for the Service to access. The Service will seek out new sources of
       funding (particularly commercial) or will discontinue externally funded work should
       funding not be accessed.
