Club Forums are an opportunity for local authorities to connect with clubs from all sports to gain updates and support to develop their local offers. Club Forums explore a number of areas including: developing mutually beneficial links with schools, funding – both national and regional, Safeguarding, GDPR and volunteering. Specific needs of each authority are considered when building the agenda for each forum.

 

Broxbourne & East Herts

In light of COVID19, Active Broxbourne and Active East Herts have teamed up to offer five free daily webinars to discuss the impact of crisis on community sport clubs and how best to prepare for the future.

As the world faces an unprecedented global health crisis, the sport and leisure industries are stepping up and showing exactly how Sport and physical activity can be a force of good in difficult times. As sport clubs and leisure organisations work on individual and collective actions to mitigate the impacts of COVID19 on activity levels, memberships and mental health, the time is right to bring to light those actions being taken in the industry and the knowledge that is being learned.

In partnership with Sports Marketing Network, Funding4Sport and GOVOX we will host a series of webinars showcasing the best examples and innovations from across the UK, giving clubs the tools to adapt swiftly and learn from each other during these unprecedented times. There will also be support on funding streams available and how to become more vibrant, visible and viable after the pandemic is over.
