The Big Club Conversation- 8th September, 7-9pm

Sport England is currently developing its next strategy which will take effect from 2021. As part of the Strategy consultation, in partnership with Sport England's Clubs team we are inviting you to come and take part in 'The Big Club Conversation'.

Earlier this year, Sport England's first phase of consultation identified some 'big issues' which we are likely to see a focus on going forwards. Through the Big Club Conversation, we'd love to hear your views on what they mean for clubs and community groups.

  • Tackling inequality – what does this mean for community clubs and groups and what's the role they can play.
  • Digital resources and use of technology – what role does it play in delivering community sport, what help/support might you need?
  • Workforce – the people who make sport and physical activity happen.
  • Diminishing local resources - people, places, funding etc.

We'd love you to join in the discussion and share some of the great things you are already doing around these issues. But we are also keen to hear what challenges you have, where you think you need support and how things might need to work differently to support you.
