Welcome to the Sport & Recreation Case Study Toolkit

Tell your sport and recreation story

You know how valuable your organisation is. This self-help toolkit can help you tell others...potential and current members, funders, planners and more.

Who is the toolkit for?

This toolkit helps clubs, groups, facilities, event organisers and more to record, report and understand value to members, participants, the local and wider community, and stakeholders.

Why tell your story?

Do you sometimes need to blow your own trumpet? Provide evidence of your value? - possibly for promotion, marketing, advocacy, funding bids or to reflect, plan and strategise?

Purpose of this toolkit

This toolkit provides you with the tools, tips and advice to research, document and produce your story.

Ways to tell your story

Depending on your needs and resources you can produce a short photo/video story, a more comprehensive case study report or a detailed values report.
