Reactions to work undertaken for the Black Country Consortium:

“I think they are excellent and provide a great snapshot of both the baseline position and priority areas for action. They are also really clearly presented, easy to follow and powerful in terms of the key facts and figures. It's also great to have all the local evidence and baselines in a single document.  I think it would be good for you to share them with the County Sports Partnership Network as an example of best practice.”
