Hosted by the University of Hertfordshire, HSP operate as the strategic lead for the development of sport and physical activity in Hertfordshire; targeting a range of health and social outcomes in communities across the county.  

I lead the HSP Health team. Within the team we have pillars of activity including Covid-19 recovery (short, medium and long-term), older adult provision (active ageing and LTHC provision), mental health and disability sport. Elsewhere in HSP, our Sport for Social Change team deliver interventions targeting a range of social outcomes including, but not limited to, reductions in youth crime, improvements in educational attainment and holiday hunger related issues. In addition, HSP operate Active Local; a place-based approach to achieving the above through targeted work in low socio-economic communities around the county.  

All HSP’s work is insight driven with embedded impact and evaluation methods conducted either in house or through collaboration with UH colleagues.
