Sport Hampshire & IOW (SHIOW) is committed to increasing levels of participation in sport and physical activity. Our vision is, 'Inspiring more people, to be more active, more often'.

We plan to achieve this through our four strategic aims:

  1. To inspire and sustain greater participation in sport and physical activity.
  2. To make the case for sport and physical activity, building the evidence base, advocating its benefits and providing the right information to inspire people to be active.
  3. To support activity at all levels through the development of a quality workforce:coaches, instructors, leaders, volunteers, teachers, officials and administrators.
  4. To plan strategically and provide a range of high quality, active environments and appropriate facilities supporting introductory activities, participation and performance sport.

As a Partnership, Sport Hampshire & IOW is hosted by Hampshire County Council and works with a range of organisations to increase sports and physical activity participation. Our Partners include Local & Unitary authorities, National Governing Bodies of Sport, School Sports Partnerships (including FE/HE), Sport England, English Federation of Disability Sport, sports coach UK and Youth Sports Trust, as well as the Department of Health and local NHS organisations.
