Clubs are becoming more professional and better organised as they improve their performance and the service they provide for members. Some clubs are keen to recruit more members and expand while others simply want to consolidate.
Whatever stage your club is at, and wherever you are aiming to be, there are many resources that can help you. Including our Workforce Education Programme, which includes a range of courses aimed at supporting you to develop your Club.

Inclusion Club Hub
The Activity Alliance (formally English Federation of Disability Sport, EFDS) have created the Inclusion Club Hub, to help clubs to include more disabled people in their activities. The toolkit will give you ideas, methods and resources to ensure everyone has a positive club experience.
The Ten Principles film below is there to guide providers to deliver more appealing and inclusive opportunities. If embedded within planning and delivery, the principles can be the vital ingredient for delivering activities that will support disabled people to be and stay active for life.
