team BEDS&LUTON is one of 45 County Sports Partnerships across England. Our goal is to have a Healthier, Happier and Fitter Bedfordshire. Click here to Meet the team.
We bring together a range of groups across the Luton and Bedford area, including local authorities, national governing bodies, coaches, clubs and volunteers to support, develop and promote sport and physical activity in the local area so everyone can have the opportunitiy to achieve a healthier, happier and more active life.
We have recently achieved an 'excellent' rating in a tough assessment by Sport England's leading national quality scheme, Quest. We are the first County Sports Partnership in the country to achieve 'excellent' in two consecutive assessments. Quest is the best-known improvement programme within the leisure industry and its rigorous assessments challenge even the very best sports development teams in the UK.
teamBeds&Luton's Director, Lloyd Conaway, said "We are very proud to be recognised as an excellent sports development team. This is a fantastic achievement and a real team effort. Only 8 CSP's in the country have this top rating and we are the first County Sports Partnership to achieve excellent in two consecutive assessments. This is testament to the commitment of the team, the support and buy in from our partners and a strong culture of continuous improvement here at teamBeds&Luton."
Our board sets our strategic direction and their experience, commitment and passion for sport and physical activity helps to ensure that we continue to develop and succeed. The day to day team may be small but it's certainly mighty with 11 dedicated staff working hard behind the scenes to organise sporting and fitness events, manage projects and improve and develop sporting facilities across Bedfordshire. The infographic below gives some examples of the key areas we've worked in and our achievements over the past 12 months. Please get in touch if you would like to chat through an idea for a new club in the area, or are looking for help with sport grant funding.
