Club Support

Here at Active Lancashire, we value the work and achievements of all local clubs and groups that contribute to physical activity and sports opportunities across the county. We know how valuable you are to the local communities you serve, not only for the activities you provide but for all the extra support, networking and other opportunities that come from being part of a community club or group.

As we start to “return to play” after the recent restrictions due to COVID19, we are looking to offer our support and knowledge to local partners, clubs and groups. The experiences of the last year and feedback from local clubs and community groups who secured funding through Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Funding has highlighted the need to offer more support and guidance.

Through this feedback and from talking to local partners we are already putting in place support that will help with the long term sustainability of clubs and groups by supporting with issues such as :

  • Business planning
  • Governance support/advise
  • Supporting /developing local forums/networks
  • Training and development of volunteers
