I know as NGBs you will have your own responses to your sports clubs and will have circulated the Sport England Emergency fund etc…
I just wanted you to know there is also a Community Foundation for Staffordshire (including Stoke) which is offering support to those needing support through these challenging times. Please can you circulate where you can:
Keep an eye on Club Matters https://www.sportenglandclubmatters.com/ as they are compiling lots of guidance and templates for sports clubs through the current crisis. There are also templates and guidance such as Emergency Financial Planning, Securing your premises, Understanding financial support available, Making the most of social media channels and more.
If you have any feedback for Sport England that will help understand the challenges you’re facing, both ongoing and in the future, they really want to hear from you now and to take on board your ideas and concerns to feed into their plans. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know:
– How coronavirus is impacting you or your organisation and the type of help you think would be most beneficial.
Sport Structures are still running the UK sport Safeguarding and Protecting Children in Sport workshops online via virtual classroom sessions. The workshops will run for two hours and will follow the same process as our face to face workshop with the same content being covered. https://www.sportstructures.com/news/education-in-isolation-update/
Hope this helps
With kind regards
Due to the current situation, SASSOT staff are working from home. However we are all fully contactable via email, mobile or social media so please stay in touch…
