The sustainability of local sports clubs in Scotland

E-mail Print

It is clear that local sports clubs are a vital part of the fabric of community life in Scotland, and bring a range of social and economic benefits to local communities.

This report describes research undertaken between July 2005 and January 2006 to identify and investigate the sustainability issues facing sports clubs. The research has identified a range of issues, and proposes a number of actions to address these. The research also identified a wide range of good practice issues, as well as innovation by clubs, Scottish governing bodies and others.

At a general level, sports clubs may be missing out on a good deal of assistance as they do not identify themselves with the wider voluntary sector. Assistance on a range of issues is available through the Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) network, and from the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) (as well as Volunteer Development Scotland and a range of other organisations).
