Sport England Club Matters

Sport England’s Club Matters launches on 12 February 2015. Club Matters is a One Stop Shop of support for sports clubs, which will provide support, learning and guidance on all aspects of running a club whether it is large, small, formal or informal.

This will bring together Sport England’s existing support for clubs; including Clubmark, Club Leaders and Help for Clubs (Sport England club web pages) to create a single, integrated, free support package for clubs.

For more information please visit www.sportenglandclubmatters.
