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.
