After closely monitoring the latest advice from government, especially in relation to social distancing, the Sport and Recreation Alliance has taken the decision that all staff will work remotely with immediate effect.

All team members will remain contactable throughout this period and we will continue to support you throughout this period. Emails, social media and phones will continue to be monitored through our usual working pattern. You can find out how to contact us here.

Regrettably, this also means that any bookings previously made for meeting space at the Alliance offices in Holborn have been cancelled. We will update you once we are fully functioning and able to welcome you back into our offices.

With the situation rapidly developing, we understand the restrictions and difficulties facing the sector in the weeks and months ahead.

We will continue to update you and all of our partners at the earliest opportunity throughout this challenging time. As part of our effort to support please read our advice on how strong governance can help you to fight the virus.

Later today, we will be releasing more information on the latest financial measures announced by the Chancellor and what this means to the sector.

We will also continue to signpost to the most appropriate guidance, advice and help that is being provided by government and other stakeholders.

At the present time we would encourage you to check the following resources:

Please continue to check our website, social media channels and Daily News Summary for regular updates.

Sport England have also opened a dedicated email inbox for the sector to share the issues they now face due to the impact of coronavirus, and which support would be most beneficial. You can contact them via

The Sport and Recreation Alliance remains committed to working with our members to provide the benefits of physical activity as much as possible during this time. As a sector we will overcome this challenging period and we will resolutely remain on hand to support you.

Although we may not be physically in our office, we can reassure you that our virtual doors remain open and we look forward to continuing our work with you.

Lisa Wainwright,

Chief Executive Officer, Sport and Recreation Alliance
