Many of you have been in touch and we know how worried you are.
Questions such as ‘when will be able to start playing again?’, ‘how many of our members will come back?’ and ‘how will we manage financially?’ have been common.
We don’t have the answers to all those questions right now, but we are doing all we can to help you through it as much as possible.
Last week we announced our Community Emergency Fund, which we’d encourage clubs in financial difficulties to look very closely at, and Club Matters has also produced some practical advice for getting through the next few weeks and months.
Understanding financial support and business rates
We know clubs are structured in lots of different ways, which means that getting to the bottom of what support is available can be difficult.
We’ve gathered lots of the information available to help you decide what the best option is for you.
Business continuity, financial planning and securing your premises
These might not sound like the most interesting tasks, but right now they will help you plan for the short and medium-term impact of coronavirus.
Operating your club virtually and keeping in touch with people
Staying connected with your committee and making decisions doesn’t need to stop. There’s lots of ways that you can connect via video so that committee meetings, subgroups and even AGMs can still take place.
We can’t predict the future right now, but we know the impact sports clubs and organisations have will be more important than ever in the weeks to come.
