The next event will be:

A choice of two free workshops to help your club:

  1. The Funding workshop offers an overview of funding available, and gives advice on the application process with top tips on how to be successful in achieving funding.
  2. The Club Participant Experience workshop will help you attract new people and understand the needs of your members by delivering a great club experience. Examples will be shared where clubs have made some relatively small changes, which have resulted in a growth in membership.
