Facilities are essential in attracting, retaining and developing athletes of the future. Having the right facilities in the right place is crucial in meeting growing demand, increasing participation in physical activity and athletics, improving the health of the nation and supporting a new generation of athletes in clubs and schools through to national and world class level.
UKA does not have capital development funds to invest in facilities. However, it has a key role to play in the governance and direction of the sport and will continue to support HCAFs, Home Country Sports Councils and external funding partners to identify and prioritise capital projects that address deficiencies in provision, and contribute to the achievement of their key strategic objectives
UKA's firmly held view that all facilities should always follow the principles of inclusive design and be compliant with the 2010 Equality Act.
UKA's 2014-19 Facilities Strategy sets out the needs of athletics for the next decade and provides a 12 step process and needs assessment toolkit that supports facility owners, operators, member clubs and stakeholder organisations to make informed decisions about the development of affordable, sustainable and appropriate athletics facilities that will encourage and increase participation, strengthen member clubs and support UKA's objective of improving performance in every event
