Our services

I Trust Sport works with federations, sponsors, institutions, other bodies and individuals on projects to bring about genuine change.

Assessment design and implementation

I Trust Sport works with institutions, government agencies and individual sports bodies to design and implement governance assessment tools. With extensive experience of working on assessment systems at national and international level, we can help you develop a process which is credible, objective, practical to implement and reflects current best practice.

Independent reviews

I Trust Sport makes use of the well-established ASOIF governance assessment tool, which comprises a set of 50 indicators (like a checklist with scores) divided across five principles:

  • Transparency
  • Integrity
  • Democracy
  • Sports development and solidarity
  • Control mechanisms

By working through the indicators with I Trust Sport, federations and governing bodies can carry out a governance audit of the organisation and identify areas for improvement.

I Trust Sport can also conduct independent audits using other governance assessment systems, and develop appropriate recommendations.

Best practice guidance

I Trust Sport provides good practice guidance on governance to federations, governing bodies, other sports organisations and individuals with an interest in the governance of sport.

We also advise sponsors and commercial partners in sport on how to have a meaningful and responsible influence on the organisations they support, recognising that there may be reputational and business risks involved

Governance research and development

I Trust Sport collaborates with institutions, NGOs and other organisations on research and development projects in the general field of sports governance.

Who we work with

Federations and governing bodies

Federations and governing bodies

I Trust Sport helps support sports governance in federations and governing bodies in a collaborative way.

Now that public scrutiny is more intense than ever before and funding for sport is under increasing pressure, it is essential for federations and governing bodies to ensure that they are operating as effectively and efficiently as possible.
