South West Youth Games


The Chair welcomed Chris Broadbent, Chief Executive of the South West Youth Games who spoke on the Youth Games.


Introduced as part of the Millennium Games in 1999, where every county created a Youth Games of their own, in the South West it had been going for 18 years. The South West Rotary Youth Games was now the largest community sports event for children and young people in Devon and Cornwall, offering over 20 sporting competitions. Despite lottery funding ending in 2014 the Youth Games had continued with a new board of trustees obtaining local sponsors, including the headline sponsor, South West Rotary Clubs and the support of Teignbridge District Council.


The Games introduced children to a sport or activity at a level under County standard including a number of targeted groups that did not usually get the opportunity to take part in such events. Street sports, such as skateboarding etc., indoor cycling and rowing were notable recent additions.


Responding to Members’ queries, Chris Broadbent recognised that increased female and disabled participation were an important focus and that the new Exeter Youth Voice project set up as part of the Exeter Youth Strategy could help promote and advise.


Chris Broadbent would be developing this work further in conjunction with Matt Evans of Active Devon and welcomed the opportunity to work with the Board and the City Council in the future.







Strategic Needs Assessment

The presentation will focus on a general health needs review for the City with a drill down into the data analysis regarding physical activity, active travel and congestion with emphasis on the Sport England Local Delivery Pilot.



Simon Chant spoke to the presentation, data drawn from the JSNA, Annual Public Health profile report, Integrated Care Exeter Risk stratification reports and National Public Health Profiles:-


The following were covered:-


·         population structure and change;

·         indicators with worse outcomes than England average;

·         index of Multiple Deprivation and deprivation Profile by Domain;

·         deprivation and the health inequalities gap and health related behaviours;

·         loneliness and risk of loneliness;

·         Integrated Care Exeter (ICE) Risk Stratification Model and the findings on frailty which were age related presenting good opportunities for early detection, prevention and treatment; and

·         the data would assist the community builders and community connectors with their work in the community.


There would now be a Devon wide roll out of the ICE linked data risk stratification tool.


RESOLVED that the report be noted.




Sport England Local Delivery Pilot


Jo Yelland updated the Board on preparations for the Sport England Local delivery pilot, James Bogue to be seconded for two and half days a week to the City Council from Active Devon to assist with the work. A sum of £100 million from Sport England was to be distributed amongst the 12 pilot areas, the split to reflect the differing plans and resources of each area, the Exeter/Cranbrook bid benefitting from the significant data analysis already undertaken which would assist in measuring impact and monitoring outcomes. A learning network had been established, information on the Exeter/Cranbrook data gathering to be shared with the other pilot site. With satisfactory progress on outcomes there was potential to expand for another four years and the pilot status would not preclude funding available from other Sport England sources although this would need to be co-ordinated through the delivery pilot programme.


The Exeter/Cranbrook pilot target was 10,000 newly active individuals, particularly families being active together with low income and deprivation groups especially targeted. It would align with the work of Wellbeing Exeter and green travel and congestion reduction aspirations of Exeter City Futures.


The Chair remarked that the successful bid dovetailed with a number of other initiatives including the Greater Exeter Strategic Sports Board, City Council emerging strategies on Facilities and Pitches as well as the new Leisure Centre.


Jo Yelland advised that a stakeholder meeting was scheduled for 23 March after which initial plans for the pilot would be clearer and could be more widely publicised.


RESOLVED that the update be noted, Gillian Champion to be asked to comment on the potential of co-locating primary care services with community and leisure facilities if health and well being hubs were to be developed in the future.

Jo Yelland presented the final draft terms of reference for the Exeter Community Health and Wellbeing Board including potential membership. The paper would be updated to refer to Exeter City Community Trust instead of Exeter Football in the Community Trust.


The Chair suggested that the membership could be broadened with further representation as appropriate and the proposal for Chris Broadbent of South West Youth Games to be added was agreed.




(1)        the terms of reference be adopted; and


(2)        Chris Broadbent of South West Youth Games become a Board Member.




Exeter Youth Voice


Dawn Rivers reported that the City Council was taking the lead co-ordination role for this next stage of developing a Youth Strategy for the city and that, after inviting Expressions of Interest from a number of organisations, Young Devon had won the contract to facilitate the ‘Exeter Youth Voice’ initiative with young people across the city. This work would build on the consultation that had taken place with young people during 2016/17 resulting in the launch of the Youth Strategy in March 2017. The project would be delivered through a steering group including Exeter City Council Communications and Marketing Team who would be supporting the process and helping to profile the views of young people, Devon County Council and other agencies.
