Rochdale sports clubs and physical activity providers are missing out on funding, free training and much more!

There are 1,180 voluntary organisations, community groups and social enterprises making a difference across Rochdale, with 31% providing sport and physical activities. Local charity, Action Together recognises that sport and physical activity providers can help build stronger communities by bringing people together and improving the health and wellbeing of local people.

Action Together supports and advises voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups, which includes sports clubs and physical activity providers, across Rochdale by providing training, a range of networking opportunities, help with finding and securing funding and much more through its free membership.

Whether you’re a newly formed or a long established sports club or physical activity provider, you can join Action Together’s #WednesdaysWeekly - Sport and Physical Activity providers online information session on Wednesday 29 September at 1pm – 2pm to discover how the charity can strengthen your service including:

  • support with organisational development
  • to network with organisations in your area
  • support with recruiting and managing volunteers
  • regular information about local changes, news, funding and training relevant to you
  • to have a say and be involved in decision making about the things you care about
  • opportunities to promote your group and its services or activities
  • help to achieve Action Together’s Quality in Action and Volunteering in Action Award

Julie Durrant, Neighbourhood Facilitator at Action Together who is leading the session has 32 years’ experience in the sporting community, commented: “Clubs get lots of support from national governing bodies, however, Action Together provides added value to managing the day-to-day challenges of running your local group, saving you time to focus on what matters most to your group.

“The free #WednesdaysWeekly - Sport and Physical Activity providers session is ideal for local clubs looking to save time running your organisation. It will include an opportunity to meet our staff and ask lots of questions about our game changing free membership services.”
