Sport England has announced the launch of Club Matters, a One Stop Shop of support for sports clubs. This resource will bring together Sport England's existing support for clubs; Clubmark, Club Leaders and Help for Clubs to create a single, integrated and free support package for clubs. Club Matters will provide clubs with learning and guidance on all aspects of running a club whether it is ‘large, small, formal or informal’.
Club development support will be offered through:
• Online Support
• Club Improvement Plan
• Club Views
As Club Matters is largely online, its flexible nature allows clubs to fit development around their already busy schedules. The tools and resources available will help clubs to understand their management, members and volunteers, developing their skills and creating more sustainable clubs along the way. Face to face support is also available for those who prefer to learn from and with others.
There are a number of funding sources available to London Clubs to apply for. Many of the funding opportunities are detailed within the British Gymnastics funding newsletter. Additionally, London Sport provides a monthly funding update and also has a funding search tool available.
