Embedding Hubs into the wider community

This is the title of the presentation that Bengy Barsanti, Community Sport Hub Development Officer, East Lothian Council will be giving at the Enterprise and Collaboration in Community Sport in Scotland which takes place at Murrayfield on 4th December.

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.

In this presentation Bengy Barsanti will discuss hubs in East Lothian, their overarching ethos and their journey as they try to find their feet.

He will share the highs and lows Hubs have been through to embed themselves into their communities and how being involved in local Area Partnerships have provided a vehicle for sports clubs to improve their influence on local decisions. He will ask questions of how Hubs can truly be sustainable, provide genuine impact and be recognised as a voice for local sport worthy of being consulted.

Bengy Barsanti has spent the last 8 years working in sport across Scotland. His desire to see real change and sustainable community sport challenges clubs and colleagues to be innovative, ask questions and think outside the box.
