Community Strategies and LAAs - A sustainable community strategy (SCS) is the long-term vision and plan for a local area. Preparation of a sustainable community strategy (SCS) is a requirement for all council. Local Area Agreements (LAAs) are the mechanism for making the vision a reality and were introduced in 2004, as a framework for partnership working at local level; and between local areas and central government. The current round of LAAs runs until March 2011.).

Sport directly relates to a number of targets appearing in LAAs for the four North London Boroughs including:

  • NI 6 Participation in regular volunteering (Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest)
  • NI 8 Adult participation in sport and active recreation (Haringey and Waltham Forest)
  • NI 57 Obesity in primary school age children in Year 6 (Barnet, Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest)
  • NI 110 Positive activities for young people (Enfield and Haringey)

Apart from the targets above the LAA's also signal plenty of further opportunities to use the best that sport has to offer in meeting other local priorities
