Abstract Streetgames works with disadvantaged communities to increase access to sport for young people, either creating new opportunities to be active or increasing the quality and accessibility of existing opportunities. Sport delivered effectively to this audience needs to be at the right time, right place, right price and right style – we call this Doorstep Sport. Developed in partnership with National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) in response to feedback regarding the challenges faced when part of the coaching workforce, Streetgames created an Activator workshop that supports an individual’s journey into sports leadership and coaching by up-skilling and preparing them for work in community settings. Doorstep Sport reaches young people in communities that often receive little else in terms of sport and physical activity provision. In each community, Doorstep Sport is used as a catalyst for delivering wider social outcomes which can include: reductions in youth related crime and anti-social behaviour, increases in the skills of local youth to support their transition into employment and measurably positive effects on the physical and mental well-being of those who attend the Doorstep Sport sessions. To use sport effectively to achieve these outcomes requires the right workforce. Investment into workforce pays dividends. Those who accessed learning from the Activator workshops increased the breadth of their local sporting offer. Half of respondents told us that they had increased the range of sports they provide at multi-sport sessions, and over a third introduced an entirely new weekly session.
