SLC is offering tailored support to local authority clients to help build resilience in the leisure sector, both during and after the lockdown period. This service is for clients that are looking for optimum ways to protect and retain their leisure assets and services during and after COVID.
Sport England is fully supporting our offer of advice to local authority clients and is contributing financial support in the form of a grant, which can be match-funded, 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.
We are hosting regular ‘Think Tank’ webinars which bring together a range of organisations who share knowledge and approaches and their specific COVID related challenges during this time.
Here is a link to the reports published on our media page from each of the Virtual Think Tanks held to date, which we want to share with colleagues in the sector working on these challenges. The reports contain the key themes and topics discussed. This page also has details of how you can register your interest in attending future Think Tanks.
Immediately after 20 April, SLC set up its free helpline offering extended time to support sector colleagues shape their thinking to respond to immediate challenges.
Our Managing Director Duncan Wood-Allum has recently 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.
