Research, Case Studies and Reports

One of RSVs key roles is to conduct industry focused research to help us build a better understanding of issues affecting the sport and recreation sector across regional & rural Victoria. The results of this research are used by RSV to develop strategies for change, and to help inform policy development and decision making at all levels for community sport.

In addition, as part of our role in disseminating information to the sector, RSV develops and seeks out other related research that is relevant to the sector.

Included in the Research and Reports section are:

  • Case studies by partner RSAs on work conducted across regional & rural Victoria
  • RSV’s annual reports
  • Copies of other industry related reports and research of interest
