    Football has the ability to transform lives with local clubs lying at the heart of their communities. Whether you are keen to expand your community offerings or are interested in a more successful financial model this event will have something for you.

    The event will cover the following 3 themes with guest speakers, Alan White and Craig Wilson from Big Hearts Community Trust.

    Check Your Governance

    Does your current governance structure offer the best support for growth? We’ll consider different legal structures that can help reduce liability on trustees, protect any assets you have, get tax relief and more.

    Become Sustainable and Business Plan for the Future

    The longevity of your club and ability to sustain it through growth is crucial to its survival. We will discuss how a business plan can future proof your organisation.

    Engage With Your Community and Get Funding

    Develop your club not only to provide football but to meet the needs of the community, learn how community engagement can support this. We will look at potential funding opportunities and how to apply for them.

    This event is being held in collaboration with the Communities and Lifelong Learning Team at Midlothian Council.
