During these unprecedented times and looking to the future when Scotland does begin to recover from the coronavirus outbreak, Sports Councils and ClubSport networks have a hugely important and significant role to play at a local level. We are working hard to support our members, providing advice and guidance where we can.
Scottish ClubSport updates:
Community Lesiure UK update:
Nominations for the 2020 National Lottery Awards are now open. The National Lottery Awards celebrate the ordinary people who do extraordinary things with the help of National Lottery funding.
This year, for the first time, the Awards will, honour individuals who have made an extraordinary impact in their community especially those who have adapted during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
There will be no public vote, but your nominations will be put before a judging panel made up of members of The National Lottery family and partners who will crown which of our hometown heroes or lockdown legends will pick up a coveted National Lottery Awards trophy and a £3,000 cash prize for their project.
We are looking for individuals or small groups of people who have made an outstanding contribution in any of the categories below. Young Hero nominees should be under 18 years of age and all suggestions must have been either funded by the National Lottery or be associated with a project which has received National Lottery funding. If you are not sure, don’t worry, nominate them anyway, and our team will check it out.
Arts; Charity/Voluntary; Education; Environment; Health; Heritage; Sport; Young Hero (under 18s)
We wish our members well during this difficult time.
Expanding on the nature and unique structure of sports councils Scottish ClubSport is committed to growing the foundations put in place over the last 40 years by SALSC. The evolution of a national and local structure relevant to the sporting landscape of today will see sports councils embrace new opportunities and a modernised clubsport framework, engage knowledge and empower sports networks to work together at a local level.
Scottish ClubSport has identified priority areas, they are:
The transformation Scottish ClubSport will bring change within the membership; a modernised identity and framework implemented by more sports councils will develop the clubsport model further and a new wave of members will be identified across Local Authority areas not currently included in the membership.
Historically sports councils were set up as geographically based local sports networks representing the interests of sports clubs within their respective areas, this core role will not change, the aim of Scottish ClubSport is to strengthen this role within the sporting landscape. Sports councils were established to create unique links between clubs, Local Authorities and locally elected members, a critical role which is maintained today.
