Local Sports Partnerships
Local Sport Partnerships can support clubs in different stages of their development.
LSPs are in contact with schools and local councils. Therefore, they can support you into finding a new venue where to train. They can insert your club in their county list and promote your activities in order for you to find new members.
They often provide grants for the development of clubs. If you are looking for funding, check out their website or contact the development manager of the LSP where your club is based. Find your LSP contact here.
Local Councils own and manage facilities all over their territory. It could be beneficial for clubs to be connected with Local councils in case your are looking for a new venue or a new time for your trainings or matches. They may be promoting your activity in the local community, supporting you in finding local sponsors.
