Hi

I signed up to the network a while back and have been meaning to say hello! So great to see what everyone’s doing. My names Dan, I’m currently the volunteer lead at GraterSport, we’re the Active Partnership working across Greater Manchester.

My role has been around connecting local support networks to engage communities collaboratively. Mainly linking up with CVS/VCSE infrastructure and the local authority ‘sport development’ team. We’ve managed to make links with social prescribing in one of our boroughs and are now just trying to raise awareness of social prescribing within the community sport and physical activity sector – we created a little write up to showcase what that looks like: https://www.greatersport.co.uk/news/connecting-communities-in-bury – it’s a bit of an adhoc approach, but we’re hoping the relationship between sectors grows over the next 12 months to create more understanding between sectors and between the community.

I’ve heard people talk of open data as one part of the solution, would love to know is there’s any examples of where the opportunities of clubs/group opportunities being linked into open data?
