2016 Consultation

2016 Consultation

2016 is the fourth year in which England Athletics has consulted with members, volunteers and participants and like in 2013, 2014 and 2015, there is an opportunity to attend events that will be held in various locations across the country, followed by an online survey.

England Athletics is committed to consulting clubs and volunteers on the issues that shape our sport and the results of the survey will inform decisions made by the England Athletics board for 2016-17 and beyond.

Chris Jones, Chief Executive of England Athletics, said: “We would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to come to the various consultation events that have been held. It is essential that we hear the voices of people from a wide range of sections of the athletics community. Athletics is a very diverse sport on so many different levels, that means hearing the different experiences, views and perspectives put forward at these consultation events is very important. We know those who attend also value being able to hear from other people in the sport.  The views expressed through this consultation process are a key part of shaping the work of England Athletics over the coming years." 

As we enter into a critical period for the sport, a key part of our consultation is about hearing your views on how England Athletics can meet its strategic priorities over the next four years, as well as on issues such as how we can better engage youngsters and innovate around competition.
