Rotherham Active Partnership


What is the 'Rotherham Partnership Network'?

Rotherham has developed a robust communication structure that enables organisations with an interest in developing sport and physical activity to communicate effectively. The network has established forums and action groups to discuss, address and resolve local issues.

The network has developed a strategy for sport and physical activity, which identifies how Rotherham’s ten year vision will be delivered.

The strategy outlines a number of key themes which will be addressed through the development of local action plans.


Rotherham Active Partnership (RAP)

The Community Sports Network for Rotherham is the Rotherham Active Partnership which was launched in April 2006.

RAP is made up of public, private and voluntary sector partners working at a strategic level. The purpose of the RAP is to be the steering group and strategic lead for sport and physical activity in the Rotherham Borough.
