Organiser

UCAN - United Community Activity Network

In 2008, Birmingham City Council set up an initiative to increase participation in sporting activities across all of its districts in order to tackle the growing number of health issues and their implications. This initiative was the development of X third sector organisations called the Community Sport and Physical Activity Network (CSPAN) that would take on the role of increasing community engagement in sport and physical activity on behalf of the Council.

After 10 years of successfully delivering sport and activity based projects in the Perry Barr and Ladywood districts, the Heart of Birmingham (HoB) CSPAN, one of only two organisations remaining, undertook a full re brand in order to propel the operation into the 21st Century. The aim of the re brand was to expand the capacity of the organisation and attract a new generation of young people to the crucial work of the third sector. Reshaping the organisation and creating a captivating brand represents a significant milestone in the organisations history and is the first step towards the transformation of the third sector as a whole.
