Working with local councils

Your local council is a key stakeholder for your club. Your club may already lease facilities from the local authorities and be in regular contact. In addition, your local council:

  • can provide ongoing advice and support for your club. Some councils have a recreation officer or community services officer appointed for this purpose;
  • may have funds available to assist in developing sport and recreation facilities and projects; and
  • may have a sport and recreation council or committee that provides clubs with an opportunity to shape council sport and recreation policies.

It may be helpful for your club to nominate a member who is responsible for liaising with the council. In the first instance, this person could set up a meeting to discuss how your club and the council could work effectively together.
