Thrive – Reach, Teach and Preach

Thrive logo

Thrive is a toolkit for practitioners that brings together learning about what works when helping inactive people become active.


Launched in 2017, Thrive is an online resource which aims to share the learning from 11 projects funded by Spirit of 2012 and Scottish Government.

In 2018 Spirit commissioned Agile and ESS (both involved in developing the toolkit) to devise a learning programme to help more practitioners apply Thrive’s key messages. 

Thrive participantsTo find out more about how best to do this, we ran three focus groups with participants from 27 organisations (the REACH phase of this work: November – December 2018). 

Using what the focus groups told us, we are currently developing and piloting a blended learning programme (TEACH phase: January – June 2019). 

We will then explore how this programme could be rolled out to the wider practitioner workforce (PREACH: June 2019). 

Throughout this work we will also liaise with those involved in the wider Changing Lives Through Sport and Physical Activity programme, a partnership between The Robertson Trust, Spirit of 2012, Scottish Government and sportscotland, to make sure our work complements theirs.
