Evaluation of stewarding challenges
The SGSA has published new research on the motivations of becoming a steward and the challenges they face.
The research was conducted by 2CV, funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS). It consulted with stewards, both past and present, and identified five overarching motivations that drive people to becoming a steward:
- Variety of the role
- Passion for the sport/event
- Terms of employment
- Sense of service
The research followed work conducted by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) which undertook an assessment of the post-COVID stewarding challenges facing the sector.
