The Partnership is supported by a core team of professional officers, who have a key advocacy role for sport and physical activity across the county.

They are strategic brokers between sport and the wider agenda and support local partners in specific areas of activity including: club development; coach development; research and information; volunteer development; event management; disability sport and supporting talent pathways.

The team also aims to help develop sport as a social tool to improve the well-being of individuals, and to support the community as a whole, help other agencies to meet their objectives as defined in the framework for sport and link into the shared priorities of central and local government on health, community safety and regeneration.

With strategic co-ordination and planning, performance measurement and marketing and communication, the team aims to become a single point of contact for support, information sharing and innovation to ensure the effective delivery of sport within Merseyside.
