Consultancy Opportunity – Deaf Athlete Talent Pathways, Ecosystem and Funding

UK Deaf Sport is seeking costed proposals from experienced consultants/companies to detail options of evidence-based, sustainable deaf athlete talent and performance pathways to elite level and an estimate of what funding is needed to implement these pathways and send a GB Team to the Deaflympics. This systems-based approach must detail the full ecosystem for deaf sport in Great Britain showing pathways from grassroots through to elite level and the Deaflympics including:

  • Deaf athlete talent and performance pathways at all levels including Home Nations.  
  • A full sustainable, systems-based approach to implementing the pathways including the roles and responsibilities of different partners in the sporting landscape such as National Governing Bodies, UK Sport, and others.
  • An estimate of the funding required to implement the pathways and send a GB team to the Deaflympics.

This work must be evidence-based and show the network of partners and interconnected systems for deaf athletes through to the Deaflympics.

Full details including consultation document available here.
