New Insight Service can boost project understanding

Are you looking to prioritise your work, make sense of facts and figures, understand your communities better or understand trends to write a strategy, plan or funding bid?

Derbyshire Sport are now offering an Insight Service to partners and community based organisations. We can help you to understand what's happening in your area, and help you to have a greater impact, getting more people active and playing sport.

Using insight is vital in the development of strategy and should also guide the design of campaigns, projects and programmes. It will help your teams or committee to better understand community needs, and make a bigger difference.

Working in partnership with cutting edge consultancy Press Red, the bespoke service is available within and outside Derbyshire, with a range of different models that can be adapted to your needs.

Among the services that can be delivered include determining the most appropriate behaviour measures/indicators, a demographic analysis and forecast, a sport and physical activity behaviour analysis and the provision of expert critical thinking to interrogate information.

The team will check and challenge the emerging story and preconceptions. We can help you to prioritise information, visualise data and present effectively to your partners.

Hayley Lever, Director of Derbyshire Sport, said: "We are excited to share the approaches that we've developed with Press Red over the past couple of years.

"They have really helped us to understand what's happening in Derbyshire, and to prioritise and plan our work. We would like to help our partners to do the same.

"There's a huge amount of data and insight out there nationally and locally, but the majority of organisations struggle to use it effectively, or find the time to analyse it to inform their work."
