From ‘just a sports club/hub’ to sustainable community sport enterprise

This is the title of the presentation that Diane Cameron, Social Enterprise and Sports Co-ordinator at SENscot will be giving at Enterprise and Collaboration The way forward for community sport in Scotland conference which takes place at Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh on 4th December 2014

This is a one-day event focussing on how Scotland’s community sports providers can benefit themselves and their communities by developing and delivering innovative and enterprising programmes.

This event focuses on how to deliver great, sustainable community sport without compromising your sporting and community objectives. It will highlight best practice and provide thoughts, tools and to-dos on how you too can become a sustainable community sports provider.

Delegates will come from community sports clubs, Community Sport Hubs, governing bodies of sport, local authorities, community sports trusts at our professional and semi-pro clubs, informal sports providers, community sports enterprises, sports governing bodies, community groups and other community sports providers.

Diane’s starting point when developing a Community Sport Enterprise is about having an open and welcoming culture which encourages learning and innovation. Forward thinking sports clubs have a vision! Adopting an approach which is both enterprising and collaborative are keys to not only realising that dream but to creating a long term sustainable legacy and social impact.  And the great news is that the latter can actually support the former.

There is lots of support out there for community sports organisations and clubs to help realise their dreams.   Diane will share her knowledge both of resources and of the great stuff that’s happening in different types of sports organisations across Scotland.

Diane Cameron is a connector of people and a signpost to useful information for community sports organisations and clubs who want to become sustainable and make a difference through sport.  She has headed up the Social Enterprise & Sport Initiative in Scotland for the past four years, working both strategically to increase the profile of the sector and practically supporting sports organisations to increase both their sustainability and ultimately their social impact.
