– New group is open to all who work in sport and physical activity

– Will feature live streams and Q&As from a range of industry experts

16th April 2020

The Chartered Institute for the Management for Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) has launched CIMSPA Stronger Together – a new Facebook Group designed to provide additional support for self-employed individuals and businesses during the coronavirus crisis.

The new group – www.facebook.com/groups/cimspa.strongertogether – is designed to complement CIMSPA’s Stronger Together website hub, which launched last week. It will provide businesses and self-employed individuals in the sector with a platform for supporting each other and accessing additional resources, offers and expertise, provided by CIMSPA and its network of Stronger Together supporters.

CIMSPA is planning to run a series of weekly Facebook Live streams within the new group, bringing in a range of internal and external experts to cover a number of subjects related to helping businesses and individuals during the Covid-19 crisis.

Phill Wright, CIMSPA Business Transformation Manager, said:

“This is a time for the whole sector to come together and support each other, and we wanted to provide an interactive platform to enable that, to complement our website hub. The vision is to use this group to share useful content, advice and resources for anyone who works in the sector and to encourage networking between us all.”
