Sport England Club Leaders Bus

Pride House visits the Club Leaders Bus in Hyde Park

This is a great opportunity for those doing the day-to-day running of LGBT community sport, to receive training and support to help create a robust, economically sustainable and enterprising club network. Club Leaders is an initiative of Sport England to help improve business skills in sports clubs by bringing their knowledge and experience to the programme.

Pride House volunteers will also be on hand during the day to welcome you to the bus and introduce you to the excellent Club Leaders team.

About the Club Leaders Learning Bus

The double decker Club Leaders Learning Bus will be at Hyde Park for Pride House on Friday 10 August. People who help to run sports clubs are welcome on board to talk through ways in which they can make the running of their club easier and more effective. We would also like to make people aware of the other free services available thanks to Sport England and Lottery funding as part of the Olympic Legacy Programme, Places People Play.

Through the programme, people from sports clubs will be able to develop skills in business and financial planning, marketing, governance and facilities management in ways that suit them. As well as the Learning Bus, there is an interactive website with e-learning modules, face-to-face seminars or people can sign up to one-to-one mentoring.

Sport England Chief Executive, Jennie Price, said: “We asked the people who run clubs what they needed most, and their advice has guided every aspect of the Club Leaders offer: simple, flexible training and advice, delivered locally, and completely free. They are the unsung heroes of grassroots sport, and I am delighted we are able to offer them support as part of the legacy of London 2012.”

The Learning Bus is touring the country, initially following the route of the Olympic Torch Relay, giving clubs in rural and inner city areas the chance to find out more, including:
