Club Durham, as you may currently know it, is a club support scheme funded and delivered by Durham County Council Culture & Sport Services. However, over the last 12 months a number of key partners from across the county have been working together to develop a new and improved club support package. The new offer will bring together various expertise, support and resources to provide sports clubs with more accessible and connected support than ever before.
Who are the partners?
The partners involved are:
- Durham County Council Culture and Sport Services
- County Durham Sport
- Durham Community Action
- Sport England – Club Matters
- National Governing Bodies
Club Durham will now provide clubs with access to a much wider range of support through both the local and national partners above:
- Clubs will have access to a much wider range of information, advice, training, tools and resources to help them develop their clubs to become stronger and more sustainable.
- Information and advice will be available to clubs online via a brand new Club Durham website, as well as face to face sessions and workshops and mentorship opportunities.
- Club Durham will also be working very closely with Sport England’s new Club Matters national club support programme and will be helping clubs to access the exciting new resources available through this.
- We will also continue to work closely with national governing bodies to promote their sport specific club support packages.
- A Club Durham launch event is due to be held in March 2016 to tell clubs more about what this new Club Support programme can offer.
We look forward to seeing you at our launch event in March!
We can offer help to develop your club in different areas including courses.
