Sports Council for Glasgow Members Event


Sunday 5th February 2017



FREE Members Event - Hillhead Sports Club, Hughenden - Sunday 5th February

The Sports Council for Glasgow Board invites member clubs, and all sports clubs in Glasgow that may be interested in joining to attend this Event on  Sunday 5th February. This will focus on delivering useful information to help make your clubs better, more robust and to provide you with advice on how to grow and develop your club.


Given recent revelations of potential historical abuse within some sports we believe this is an opportune time to remind everyone of responsibilities in relation to the PVG Scheme and Protection - we are therefore delighted to have an expert in this field from Volunteer Scotland attending to present on this important subject.





There will be 4 key inter-active workshops for the afternoon:

  • Finance & Funding - sources of funding and how to access them
  • Club Development, Marketing and Promotion - how to effectively market your club or organisation to grow and develop
  • Facilities & Sports Hubs 
  • Your Sports Council for Glasgow - Future Direction - Your opportunity to help shape and influence how your Sports Council evolves and develops.
