Purpose and goal

The project aims to evaluate which social benefits leisure banks contribute to and identify challenges and success factors for leisure banks. The aim of this evaluation is to elucidate the social effects that Fritidsbanken can contribute with, but also increase awareness of leisure banks nationally and internationally.

Expected results and effects

The evaluation shows that leisure banks contribute with several positive social effects, such as increased movement and increased social inclusion.They contribute with economic effects such as increased employment, but also with environmental effects, among other things through extended life for sports equipment. Some of the success factors highlighted for the leisure banks are the loan operations and partnerships with local actors. Challenges include uncertain funding and difficulties in finding good premises at affordable prices.

Planned approach and implementation

The study constitutes a promotional evaluation, which means that it has the ambition to both review and assist the activities being studied. The methods used for material collection and analysis are both qualitative and quantitative; and includes, among others, surveys, interviews, impact analysis and environmental calculation.
