“Philippa’s involvement in the development of Primary Change4Life Sports Clubs has brought real creativity and innovation. In developing the understanding of fundamentals and multi-sport environments with National Governing Bodies this programme is now truly unique and a leading model of intervention for working with the 'less active'. This knowledge and expertise has brought new dimensions to the programme such as activity development, product innovation and child engagement strategies that has added real value to the work of the Youth Sport Trust.”
