The new Code for Sports Governance was launched in October 2016. A code for sports governance. It was prompted by the Government's new strategy for sport, Sporting Future, which was published in December 2015. The new Code contains 58 mandatory governance requirements across five themes: structure, people, communication, integrity and policy. Compliance with this Code is now a requirement for any organisation requesting future funding from Sport England and contains the most advanced and exacting set of governance standards that have been implemented anywhere in the world today. Wiltshire and Swindon Sport has undertaken the assessment process and has achieved compliance with the Code.
