How We Are Measured

GBA takes it measurement and evaluation very seriously and we are always looking to improve. We conform to the new UK Code of Sports Governance at Tier 3 (the highest level) and as a Charity we have a annual external audit. On an annual basis we are also assessed by Sport England and this has now become the formal Performance Measurement & Improvement Framework. This is now an independent assessment of our performance and is carried out by Right Directions under their Quest framework. Our first assessment under this system took place on 11-12 Dec 18 and we were delighted to have been assessed as 'Very Good'.
