What difference do Sports Leaders UK awards and qualifications make to learners who take the courses, Centres that deliver them and the wider community? These questions are explored in this bulletin which summarises findings from the first year of an evaluation of the Asda Active Sports Leaders project, co-funded by the Spirit of 2012 and Asda. This project aims to capitalise on the enthusiasm from the Olympic and Paralympic Games in London to create long lasting behavioural change through developing young leaders who deliver physical activity opportunities in their communities.
