The Impact of COVID-19 on Grassroots Activity

The Sport and Recreation Alliance has commissioned the Sport Industry Research Centre (SIRC) at Sheffield Hallam University to estimate the impact of the lockdown resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic on the voluntary sector in sport and physical activity. The findings from this research will inform discussions with the government on the effectiveness of industry support and prospects for the phased return to organised sport and physical activity.

Please give the six themes in this survey your urgent attention and reply by the 22nd of February, 2021.  The survey is designed to be completed by someone with a working knowledge of your organisation’s operations on a day-to-day basis.  While we ask you to tell us about income and expenditure, you should not need to refer to your club’s financial accounts, as a reasonable estimate will be sufficient.

The information you provide will be treated in confidence and will be aggregated anonymously along with the responses received from other organisations, to be used only for the purposes of this project.  Your organisation’s responses will not be shared with any third party other than in this anonymised and aggregated form.  You will not receive any other communications from SIRC as a result of completing this survey unless you consent to further contact for research purposes.  
SIRC at Sheffield Hallam University will be administering the survey and has implemented a number of measures to comply with data protection.  To access a copy of SHU’s Privacy Notice for research participants please click GDPR.
For any specific IT / technical issues about the survey or if you have any queries about its completion, please contact  Please choose your answers when prompted or write in the spaces provided.
