Workforce Survey

Workforce Development - Workforce Surveys 2020

Back in 2018, as part of the insight for the development of a County-wide Workforce Strategy, Active Suffolk, reached out to Clubs, Coaches, Volunteers and the Professional Workforce asking for their support in completing a short survey with the results helping to shape the five year Workforce Strategy. As we are coming up to the end of the first year of delivery, we want to reach out to our workforce once again to ascertain whether your needs are being met and what further support you may need.

The surveys are short and will only take a few minutes to complete but will help tremendously in ascertaining what we are doing well and what further support we need to provide, so have your say!

*Closing date – Friday 13th March

  • Club Survey is to be completed by the person with the best overall understanding of your club. One response per club required. The Clubs survey can be completed here: forms/view/clubsurvey2020

  • The Professional Workforce Survey is to be completed by anyone who is paid for their work in the sport or physical activity sector.

Suffolk's Countywide Workforce Strategy seeks to support volunteers, coaches, employed staff in the sector and people in clubs. Underpinning these areas is equality and diversity, ensuring more 'people like me' in the workforce with the skills, competencies and behaviours to engage a diverse range of people into sport and physical activity.

The scale and complexity of developing a workforce that can meet the needs of a broader range of participants, from a wider variety of backgrounds presents a significant challenge. The wider range of communities that Active Suffolk work is reaching may have specific needs depending on their personal circumstances and the places they live.
