  • There are three themes in this presentation The first is to communicate that we are the 140 musketeers – we shout all for one and one for all! We are an empowering network which negotiates good things at national level that filter down to improve their local projects. We need their expertise to shape the network. The second theme starts at slide 7 and is to communicate the concepts behind good practice – the lessons from the pilots. This presentation explains them and I will return to them in the closing plenary The third is to provide facts and figures about exclusion from sport
