0 STRI launches Project Pathfinder

STRI is pleased to announce the launch of 'Project Pathfinder' which forms part of the UK Government's emergency Covid-19 innovation strategy.

The project will provide sports facilities, clubs and green spaces, affected by the Covid-19 crisis, with stage one consultation advice for free between June and August 2020. If required, STRI will also deliver roadmaps to give facilities business plans to assist with their longer-term financial stability.

This initiative is available to any sports or green space facility that is currently experiencing issues directly or indirectly due to the Covid-19 crisis. This may involve advice on turfgrass maintenance practices with reduced staff, planning applications, potential cost savings, or longer-term options to put facilities on a stronger financial footing such as redevelopment or land sales.

By funding this project, the government has recognised the huge health and mental wellbeing benefits sports facilities provide to the UK. However, many of these sports facilities are especially vulnerable since the Covid-19 outbreak, which has impacted revenue and long-term business survival. STRI aims to assist as may sports facilities as possible to help them on the road to recovery.

STRI consultant Kelly-Marie Clack, said: "Project Pathfinder will provide a lifeline to sports facilities who are impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Our services will fill the gap in knowledge for facility managers who need to rapidly adapt to new financial and practical pressures. This is truly a unique opportunity to reach out and offer advice to all sections of our industry, regardless of budget or location."
