WSF East Region.
The WSF East Regional Group was set up in December 2003 in response to a desire to establish an active voice for women's sport across the region. Our region is diverse in both its demographics and rural/urban nature and covers Bedfordshire and Luton, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, Norfolk, Southend and Thurrock, Essex and Suffolk.
The group's first priority was to provide solid baseline information to influence future resource allocation into women and girls sport in the East, particularly the resources of the developing Regional Sports Board which is responsible for managing the regional plan for sport. The research was launched following the group's first regional conference in November 2004, and the aim of the group is for future policy development arising out of the research to reflect the diversity of our region.
The group comprises key representation from a variety of agencies involved in the development of sport and physical activity across the East including Sport England, Cambridge City Council, Essex County Council, Luton Sports Action Zone, Fenland District Council and Peterborough City Council with support from the Regional Active Sports Consortium.
