Evaluation of Places People Play: Places Projects

Client: 

Sport England

Ecorys, with Sheffield Hallam University, has been commissioned by Sport England to evaluate the Places People Play Programme: Places Projects. 

Places People Play is the main Lottery-funded sports initiative in place to help capitalise on the inspiration of the Games across our communities. 

The evaluation has three high-level evaluation objectives for the three places strands of the programme: to measure the impact of Iconic Facilities, Inspired Facilities and Protecting Playing Fields against the objectives for each of the three strands; to find out what works to achieve these objectives, how, in what context and for whom; and to communicate the evidence effectively to optimise its influence on policy, practice and future funding decisions.
