England Athletics Consultation

England Athletics Consultation


Following annual consultations since 2012 England Athletics is committed to ongoing engagement with clubs and other stakeholders within the sport.

Please see the left hand menu for details of previous years' consultations.

2017 Consultation

England Athletics held an online consultation which is now being followed by a series of consultation meetings around the country. So that we could tailor the consultation sessions, the online survey included a series of questions to help us to better understand the views of registered athletes, representatives of member clubs, volunteers and everyone who cares about the future of the sport.

We would like thank everyone who completed our 2017 Online Consultation which ran from Spring until mid-August. This is an annual survey that will aim to collect the feedback we need to inform our work and improve what we offer in the forthcoming year.
