Following the successful launch of its partnership with the Association of Independent Museums (AIM), Charity Finance Group has announced a second collaboration, this time with Sporta, the Sports and Recreation Trust Association.

The new partnership brings all 85 of Sporta members across England and Wales into the Charity Finance Group network, supporting each and every member organisation to help demonstrate their impact and strengthen their strategic financial management. Charity Finance Group has 1,400 charities and non-profit organisations in membership, with a network of over 3,000 individuals.

Cate Atwater, chief executive of Sporta said: “Together our members across the UK manage around £1.5bn in annual turnover and employ 67,000 staff. However, the trust model, which is grounded in social impact and building communities, is under significant threat from a race to the bottom with cash-strapped local authorities seeking the lowest cost contracts. By focusing on financial best practice and helping Sporta to scan the horizon for challenges and opportunities, this partnership with CFG will help us protect the vital status of the trust model and the future resilience of our members.”

Sporta have welcomed the UK Government’s Civil Society Strategy and called on national and local government to work with them in genuine partnership to support communities across the country.
