An independent review of sport policy and strategy which began last month is now moving online.
The reviewer, Mr Simon Cooper, has already met a number of key stakeholders in person, including
representatives from the Government of Jersey, Jersey Sport, the Commonwealth Games Association
of Jersey, the Island Games Association of Jersey, Jersey Sports Council and a number of sports
Now, the Government of Jersey wishes to make sure that as many people as possible are given the
opportunity to contribute to the review and so sports bodies and interested parties are invited to
share their views via an online survey. This can be accessed here.
Face-to-face meetings will still be available and these can be requested inside the online survey. The
survey opens on Friday 2 June and closes on Friday 14 July. Responses will help to inform the final
review report report, which is expected to published in the summer of 2023.
The review is being undertaken at a cost of around £12,000. Islanders who would like a hard copy of
the consultation questions can contact the Economy Department by calling 07797 897 387 or emailing
Assistant Minister for Economic Development with responsibility for sport, Deputy Lucy Stephenson
said: “'This work to review sport in Jersey is progressing well and I am pleased that all Islanders are
now being invited to get involved. I would encourage anyone with an interest in seeing sport in Jersey
thrive to take part in the survey to ensure their views and experiences are heard as part of this
important piece of work.'

remains appropriate, relevant and fit for purpose to meet the Council of Ministers’ Common
Strategic Policy and ministerial priorities of the Minister for Economic Development, Tourism,
Sport and Culture.
