Community Sport Hubs and local sports clubs

Community Sports Hubs

There are five Community Sport Hubs in East Renfrewshire.  Each one is different with its own aims to suit the needs of the local community.  Each Community Sport Hub consists of local sports clubs working in partnership with Sports Development to achieve the following:

  • Growth in participation through club membership and club activities.
  • Engaging with the local community.
  • Promotion of community leadership.
  • Improving the range of sporting opportunities.
  • Better connections with key partners, local organisations and people, bringing everyone together.

For more information on your local Community Sport Hub and the sports and activities they offer, please speak to Julia Walker, Community Sport Hub Development Officer or visit the hub websites:

Sports Clubs

The Sports Development Team supports and guides local clubs.  This allows clubs to offer better sporting opportunities for our local communities.

We recognise that sports clubs provide the first real experience of sport for young people.

The role of Sports Development is to work with the local clubs making sure they have planned and co-ordinated services.

We provide support around the following topics:

  • Roles and responsibilities of the committee
  • Volunteers
  • Education and Training
  • Quality Accreditation Schemes
  • Developing action plans
  • Fundraising, Grants and Sponsorship
  • Managing Events
  • How to communicate Effectively

If you are involved in a local sports club and would like support and advice, please contact John Gervaise for football clubs or Julia Walker for all other sports.
