Club support

We work closely with schools, clubs, sports governing bodies and Derbyshire Sport to provide and develop sporting opportunities for local people. This includes assistance with financial grants, club accreditation schemes, development plans and coach education.

Expert officers are on hand to support clubs across South Derbyshire, so if you have a problem, are looking for volunteers or need help with a project, contact us.

Other useful sources of knowledge include Club Matters, Sport England’s one stop shop for sports clubs, and Sport England, which creates opportunities for participation in sport for people with all disabilities. The following may also be of interest:

Community Amateur Sports Club Scheme

The Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) scheme has enabled many local amateur sports clubs that provide sporting facilities for local communities to register with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and benefit from a range of tax reliefs, including Gift Aid.

Full details about the scheme, including for multi-sports clubs and how to register, can be found on the GOV.UK website.
