Club Supporter Programme
The West of England Club Supporter Programme aims to take clubs step-by-step through the Clubmark accreditation process and provide advice on club development, workforce development and working with schools.
West of England Sport Trust (Wesport) recognises and values the commitment made by sports clubs to develop high quality, welcoming environments for young participants. The development of clubs that encourage young people to take-up sport, improve their talents and give them the option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport is an essential part of our work to support the sporting infrastructure in England.
We are also fully suppportive of Sport England / National Governing Body accreditation programmes such as Clubmark which help to ensure that clubs are offering high quality provision appropriate for their local communities and give parents and participants confidence in clubs.
Wesport are therefore delighted to annouce the launch of their new Club Supporter Programme. This programme aims to support clubs through the Sport England Clubmark and National Governing Bodies accreditation process in easy steps. The programme brings together a 6 month package of intensive development support based around 3 workshops and 3 one to one sessions with Wesport Development Officers.
