Derbyshire Sport provides a strategic lead for sport across Derbyshire, developing plans and strategies and coordinating the delivery of many county wide sports development programmes. We are part of a network of 49 county sports partnerships and recognised by Dept Culture, Media and Sport and Sport England as a key part of the “delivery chain” for sport, coordinating the local delivery of several nationally funded programmes.
A spokesperson said: "We feel that the partnerships and relationships between those public and voluntary sector organisations involved in Derbyshire Sport are now at a pretty mature stage. We know that many companies share an interest in sport, active lifestyles and active work places and so we are keen to develop our links within the private sector over the next two to three years. We plan to do this through ICON – our sport and business network and being involved in Marketing Derby is a perfect way to begin this work."
