Twelve new realities

In some local authorities, leisure services have been off the corporate radar due to them operating at a surplus and not presenting any significant problems or budget decisions. COVID-19 has resulted in those authorities having to provide financial support for the first time in years. SLC is working hard with its local authority clients and strategic partners to respond positively to the challenges being faced. We have developed our take on what we are calling the ‘Twelve new realities’ in what is a constantly evolving environment.

Sport England National Leisure Recovery Fund

Sport England opened the National Leisure Recovery Fund in December 2020, with the aim of supporting the reopening and recovery of public sector leisure facilities. A total of £100M has been distributed to 266 local authorities across England, funded by the Government and administered by Sport England.
SLC is proud to have supported a significant number of our clients in receiving £ millions of funding support.
