Sport Matters delivers its core functions through the IMPACT Toolkit:
We take a fresh approach to development using sport where it hasn't been used before. Through innovative leadership Sport Matters designs strategies that respond to identified needs and use sport to achieve specific development goals, working with and through our community partners.
We develop effective monitoring and evaluation strategies, clear program goals and objectives and logical processes to measure impact in development terms.
Creating new partnerships and ongoing relationships between the aid and development sector, the sport sector, and community organisations.
We raise the profile in Australia and internationally of the power of sport to achieve development outcomes and advocate for human rights.
We design strategies that enhance the abilities of individuals and organisations to build social capital as well as develop knowledge, skills and attitudes. We enable local community sport-for-development programs to create sustainable solutions to meet their development needs.
We support and advise organisations in strategy development for new and existing programs, offer a sport-for-development audit for organisations and deliver professional development for staff.
