London Sport

This is likely to change over time to reflect the focus on activities but this tool also covers local support services so will be useful for SPLW to switch between Open Referral and OpenActive data

Mobile and Desktop designs

Mobile is very vertical whereas the desktop has two sides. Left will be for defining the filtering and search criteria and the right side is for viewing the results

Session or Login

This version is only session based which means you don’t need to login but the favourites will be lost when you close the browser. It is intended to introduce a login option if someone wants to save their favourite activities and filter tags.


It is recognised that frontline workers often focus on different contexts. This pilot focuses on Diabetes. The top right hand corner allows different contexts to be set up and switched to. The context will govern the filtering options i.e. they are appropriate to that particular context. This pilot defaults to Diabetes but a frontline worker can set up various contexts according to the areas they are focused on.

This tool is capable of reading Open Referral and OpenActive data feeds. We believe it is the only tool that will do this. Currently it does not have the ability to switch between modes while in use such that a user can identify favourites from either services or activities but that is on the roadmap.
A default proximity can be applied to the data so that a frontline worker is not receiving data from activities and services too far afield.


For any queries then please email and we will be back to you within 2 working days.


All the filtering of the data is based on a search tag. E.g. a type of activity say badminton is a tag. Your client’s post code is a tag. Your client’s age is a tag. You will notice as you define your search that the tags appear in the filter section. You can easily remove a tag by simply clicking the ‘X’ next to its name. Your set of favourite tags can be saved so that you can easily search on those particular tags.
We have tried to make it easier to see what is in your search filters by colour coding them to the buttons that entered them.

Activity Search

There are 6 buttons for you to tailor your search. These are designed for speed to identify appropriate activities for your particular context.

Client Profile:

This is the default and allows you to enter a specific post code with a proximity around that post code i.e. enter the radius of the circle. You can choose from the drop down or enter the number yourself by clicking ‘Set manually’.
Note this is in kilometres
It allows you to enter an age and gender to ensure that your client is eligible
It also provides a drop down to focus on accessibility aids for a particular issue

Select this button to reveal a further set of buttons which have been configured for this context.
The buttons will give definitions for a target audience of the context e.g. Older pre-diabetes.
If you then click this button it will pre-populate your search with relevant criteria. You can then simply click to search.
If any of the tags in the search are not relevant to your particular client then you can simply delete or even add another tag.

Activity Context:

This allows you to define the sort of activities that your client is looking for without needing to be specific about the actual activity.
Simply click to tick all that apply. The tags for each will appear in the search filtering section

Types of Activity:

Your client may know exactly the activity they are interested in and so simply start typing then choose that activity by pressing the ‘+’ at the right-hand-end of the drop down box

It may be that your client knows a particular place that they are happy with and prefer activities to be there (or close to it) e.g. a local park or community centre.
If you start typing then the places will appear and you can just select one.
You can then enter a distance around the place so that other activities could be included.
To keep it within the building then use the ‘Set manually’ button and enter 0.5km.


Your client may be limited to when they can attend an activity and so you can filter to only show the ones that they say they are available for.
Choose the day from the drop down.
Choose a time slot – morning, afternoon, evening or all day
Just click add day.

This is where you can short list activities that your client is interested in and the search tags that you are finding most helpful.
Note: The saved tags are not really useful at this point as they are lost when you close the browser.
Favourite Activities:
See ‘Search’ below how to add activities into favourites
You can view summary information of your activity by clicking the down arrow to the left of the activity title
You can see the full details if you click the ‘Activity Details’ button to the right of the activity title.
There are two buttons above your list of favourite activities
Email: this will add the favourites list to your clipboard such that you can open an email and simply paste the favourites in. It will include the links to individual services that when your client clicks it will show then the service details in a browser.
Txt: this will add the link to the favourite activities such that you can send on any messenger app e.g. normal txting on a phone, WhatsApp, Facebook messenger etc.
Saved tag list:
This will show the searches that you have favourited. Clicking the search will simply run the search again.
You can only clear all the saved searches at this stage but once the login ability is in place then you will be able to control them individually


This is where the search tags will build up. You will see each individual tag, colour coded to the button used to add it, with an X at the end. You can click the X to delete the tag from the search if you don’t get enough results.
The search button is located at the bottom of this pane and can be clicked at any point. It will carry out a search based on whatever tags are in the filter. If there are none then all data will be returned.


The results of the search are shown under the search button with the activity title and in pages. The number of activities per page can be changed using the drop down to the right of the Results line.
The number of activities found is given in brackets () after the Results title.
Click the down arrow to the left of the activity title to see summary details
Click the ‘Star’ to colour it gold and add it to the favourite Activity List (see section 9 above)
Click ‘Activity Details’ button to open a pop-up window with three tabs showing all the details.
Click ‘View full details’ on the bottom right of the pop-up to see a full print ready page of the activity.
