Partnerships for Schools has worked closely with The Great Outdoor Gym Company to secure the roll-out of adiZones across the country on school and other community sites, utilising resources from the cross-Government Co-location Fund programme. We have found them to be an exemplary delivery partner. They have managed contact with local authorities and other agencies to ensure the necessary ownership of the adiZone developments at local level, working with individuals to maximise the benefits of the developments to the whole community, and managed links with adidas directly to make the most of their marketing expertise and brand profile.
They have successfully embedded the learning secured through the first round of projects into later developments, and shared good practice on an ongoing basis. Working together, through the investment of £3m co-location funding, we will have delivered 40 adiZones, a significant legacy for many parts of the country ahead of London 2012, and a fantastic testament to the positive working relationship developed between TGOGC, adidas and PfS – a real “win-win” for all partners.
