In September 2018 SALSC will present a new strategic proposal to our core funder sportscotland.  The proposal will illustrate the journey SALSC will take to transform into the modern equivalent, NewCo from April 2019.

The sporting system in Scotland has changed significantly over recent years from a national and local perspective.  There has been an increase in the structure of support made available to sports clubs through these changes, but the current sports council structure has yet to fully adapt to these changes. 

The proposal puts forward the case to address the gap in service provision offered by the sports council network by widening the membership of Local Sports Councils and SALSC to incorporate these changes and transform in to NewCo, with the aim of delivering a strong and cohesive membership structure, implementing positive changes within the current system.

The case for change began within SALSC in January 2017 when the Board undertook a review of the organisation through detailed SWOT and PESTLE analysis, progressing into a Strategic Review session facilitated by sportscotland later the same year.  Alongside these discussions SALSC carried out a Membership Survey in 2017 which has influenced the strategic thinking from the membership perspective and informal discussions with national partners and governing bodies.

The core objectives of the proposal will focus on four target themes as illustrated in the diagram:

  • Network
  • Advocacy
  • Governance
  • Volunteers

The diagram (click here) is the model SALSC have implemented to demonstrate and summarise the core elements in the draft proposal.  This model is a strategic planning tool which shows the context of how the changes fit in to the vision of the organisation. 

This summary and the diagram are designed to give you an overview of the direction the proposal is taking, please now take the opportunity to feedback your views through our Strategic Proposal survey using this link -
