Sports Facility Needs in Multicultural Communities

NSW Office of Sport

The NSW Office of Sport is currently preparing a series of sport facility plans across NSW. This includes plans for each of the five Sydney districts as well as plans for areas such as Greater Newcastle.

Cred partnered with Micromex Research to deliver research into the participation trends of Sydney's growing and changing culturally diverse community. 

Sydney is now the world’s most hyper diverse city with around 36% of residents speaking a language other than English at home. Access to sport and recreation participation is essential to the health, wellbeing and social connectivity of our increasingly dense and diverse city, including the delivery of sports and recreation facilities that support participation in a range of opportunities. Understanding the needs and interests of different cultural groups, through this research project, will assist with planning Sydney’s future sports and recreation infrastructure for a range of stakeholders including through State and local governments and private developers.
