Our People

Every organisation is the sum total of the qualities of its people and that’s no different here at Bristol Sport Foundation. We are proud that our team all share a love of sport and a genuine desire to bring about positive change to the communities of Greater Bristol. 

We care about our communities and the people who live within them and we endeavour to use our enthusiasm and dedication, with a bit of Ashton Gate magic sprinkled on top, to engage and inspire as many people as we are able to.

We are all individuals; with our own passions and personalities… but collectively we are the BSF family

“Working for Bristol Sport Foundation is, without a doubt, something special. I am surrounded by incredible people who hold a shared passion in helping children to fall in love with sport. As a team, we strive to eliminate barriers to opportunity and deliver unique, life-changing experiences to make memories that last a lifetime.” – Lara Short
