Value of Sport Monitor

The importance of sport as a means to achieve wider social, health, economic and environmental outcomes has been increasingly recognised by Government and others over recent years. The Value of Sport Monitor is a joint Sport England and UK Sport initiative working in conjunction with Professor Fred Coalter and colleagues at the University of Stirling. It provides an online monitoring service of the most up-to-date reference sources and critical reviews of published research evidence on the contribution of sport to a range of broader social issues.

The Value of Sport Monitor database can be searched by keyword or by category. Categories include economic impact, physical fitness and health, social capacity and cohesion, and participation.
