Sport England will be ceasing Clubmark accreditation on 30 November, 2019
We have received notification from Sport England that the Clubmark scheme will be coming to an end at the end of November 2019. The scheme has brought about a significant improvement in standards across the community sports sector. There are elements of the existing scheme which, at its creation, were positioned as ‘best practice’ (safeguarding/duty of care and governance) which are now deemed to be essential aspects of any club’s operations.
In order to continue to promote club development, a new ‘Health Check’ tool on the Club Matters platform that will take clubs through stages of development; designed to support you depending on your size and need. This will be launched in December 2019. As well as this Club Matters will continue to provide resources, tools and new content to keep you up to date!
Clubmatters will continue and has a huge range of resources available to support club development such as:
- Club Improvement tool
- Online Learning Modules
- Toolkits and Templates
- Clubmatters Workshops available for booking
The Clubmark website will still be available with a range of guides to support the four development areas.
For those that already have Clubmark, your accreditation will remain until it expires. It will continue to be acknowledged and a toolkit is being prepared to help you maintain the standards that Clubmark has promoted.
