Support, advice, expertise and information for your club
Community and voluntary sports and physical activity clubs play a vital role in encouraging more people to participate in sport and physical activity. They are at the very heart of our villages, neighbourhoods and communities.
This section sets out to offer practical advice and information to make it easier to run your club. You will find handy hints on how to promote your club to attract more members, how to raise funds and how to manage your club more effectively.
Club Matters is a One Stop Shop of support for sports clubs, which provides support, learning and guidance on all aspects of running a club whether it is large, small, formal or informal.
Online Support – Club Matters will offer you help and guidance in all areas of club development from finances to marketing your club! There will be a range of support available including online toolkits, quick reference guides and e-learning modules.
Mentoring – Whether you want long term support, or just a short call to sound out your ideas, our Club Matters mentors can help. Our flexible mentoring scheme will offer more personal support to you and your club through online, group and one to one mentoring at a time and place to suit you.
Club Improvement Plan – An online health check for clubs of all sizes and at all stages of their development, to establish where they are performing well and where they can develop. This will provide your club with a tailored development plan, identifying recommended actions and priority areas.
Club Views – A club review tool allowing you to ask your members and volunteers what they think about your club and make suggestions on areas for improvement. You can choose from our pre-written questions or create your own bespoke review.
