“The Council commissioned SLC to carry out a review of the Council’s leisure service following the Covid-19 pandemic. Like most local authorities the Council’s leisure contract became increasingly challenging throughout 2020 and 2021 and therefore there was a need to review the future of leisure.

SLC showed great professionalism, expertise and energy right from the start – engaging with members, senior management and officers and gaining knowledge on the Council’s corporate objectives and strategies as well the service. SLC regularly updated key stakeholders on their work and showed great adaptability and flexibility throughout.

Following a number of consultations and workshops SLC eventually produced an in depth, evidence-based report, putting forward innovative options for the future of the Council’s leisure service – which was both strategic and practical, which has set a strong foundation for the Council to build upon.”
