Sport & Recreation Advocacy Toolkit

Giving Your Sport A Voice


In the sport and recreation sector, there is, from time to time, a need to influence policy, align with others’ strategies where appropriate and influence allocation of resources. Given this, there is also the need to deliver coordinated leadership and advocacy in a compelling voice for the sector. In 2017/18 the Auckland sport and recreation sector participated in a Sport Matters campaign in response to Auckland Council’s call for submissions on the Auckland Plan and Long-term Plan. This toolkit has been developed as result of this campaign for use by the sector as appropriate. The purpose of this advocacy toolkit is to provide information, insights and ideas that will assist codes, clubs, community groups and lobby groups to advocate effectively. It is available for groups to tailor and implement as they see appropriate for their situation.
