At the centre of both Sport and Public Services is people. Whether working with them or for their safety our world does not exist without the Sport and Public Service sectors.
Public Services affect each one of us covering health, criminal prevention, emergency services, the armed forces and welfare sectors. While Sport is a global phenomenon reaching all ages, genders and cultures, from coaching to fitness to rehabilitation.
