Community Activity

When we talk about community activity we are referring to the way that  community owned clubs establish ongoing relationships and engagement with individuals and organisations with the aim of achieving a collective vision for the benefit of their local community.

The purpose of a community benefit society is to serve the broader interests of the community. To achieve this, the club needs to engage with the community
to identify how they can work in a way that supports local needs.

The unique role that clubs play in local communities enables them to be a focus for community activities. By creating goodwill and responding to local needs, clubs can attract support from individuals and organisations who were not previously engaged.

This resource has been developed as a guide to assist clubs in developing community activities, it signposts other useful resources and provides a short case study.
