Engaging social enterprises to promote and develop sporting provision

This is one of the presentations at the conference Enterprise and Collaboration – The way forward for community sport and physical activity in Wales.

This is a one-day event focussing on how Welsh community sports providers can meet the challenges and benefit from new opportunities created by changes in people’s lives, the political landscape and the economic situation.

The conference is held on 26thJune 2014 at SWALEC Stadium, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff

This presentation is delivered by Kelly Davies, Founder/Managing Director, Vi-Ability

Social enterprises can play a major role in community sport driven by the conviction that sport has an important role to play in addressing key social issues and that thriving clubs create a sense of belonging, which in turn fosters greater community cohesion.

Over the last 4 years Vi-Ability has grown into a highly awarded Social Enterprise, focusing on the use of sport to create active, healthy, and engaged communities with a financial viable and sustainable sports club at its heart.

The presentation will focus on how social enterprises in sport can be inspiring simply because of the passion, tenacity and ultimately the impact they make whilst they are facing the frustration because of the lack of acceptance and understanding

Vi-Ability Founder and Managing Director Kelly Davies is a former Arsenal and Liverpool Ladies footballer that won 36 caps for Wales and is the youngest woman to obtain an MBA in Football Industries.
