In conjunction with the Major Events Governance Guidance recommendations, UK Sport are pleased to provide practical support in the form of templates to enable quicker and easier implementation of this best practice.
These resources are those referenced within the guidance, and are available for you to use to help form your own governance documents. All events will be different however, and there is no ‘one size fits all’, so it is recommended you give careful consideration to your specific circumstances when using these resources.
For further support or if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Major Events Business Manager on Major.email@example.com
