SLC is offering tailored support to local authority clients to help build resilience in the leisure sector following the lockdown period. This service is for clients that are looking for optimum ways to protect and retain their leisure assets and services during recovery and after COVID.
Sport England is fully supporting our offer of advice to local authority clients and has contributed financial support in the form of match-funded grants, to assist local authorities in securing this professional advice quickly.
SLC has developed a sector leading methodology to support local authorities at this challenging time. As lead authors of the Sport England Strategic Outcomes Guidance and Leisure Services Delivery Guidance, we are able to offer considered advice and support from a team of highly experienced consultants with an exceptional track record.
We have a strong understanding of the realities facing our sector and how we can help facilitate optimum solutions to enable a more resilient sector during and post-COVID.
Throughout lockdown and into the recovery period, we hosted regular ‘Think Tank’ webinars which brought together a range of organisations to share knowledge and approaches and their specific COVID related challenges during this time.
Here is a link to a review of the sessions to date and the reports from each Virtual Think Tank, published on our media page, which we want to share with colleagues in the sector working on these challenges. The reports contain the key themes and topics discussed.
Immediately after 20 April, SLC set up its free helpline offering extended time to support sector colleagues shape their thinking to respond to challenges.
Our Managing Director Duncan Wood-Allum has developed a thought-proving article on the challenge facing our sector and proposing a blueprint for local authority sport and physical activity to be adapted and developed locally. Click here to read this article.
