A conference dedicated to the empowerment of Aberdeenshire clubs will take place in Newmachar in November.
Organised by Live Life Aberdeenshire (LLA), the conference will include skills and learning workshops on mental health, funding, inclusion and social media.
“Conference 4 Clubs” will take place at The Axis Centre from 10am to 3pm on Sunday, November 3.
LLA officers will highlight resources and support services available to local clubs, both locally and nationally.
One of the key themes of the conference is mental health and it will feature headline presentations looking at the positive part clubs can play in this area.
A series of workshops will help develop skills, provide up-to-date information and conversation on some key topics relevant to clubs
- Funding – sportscotland and The Federation of Rural Partnerships will offer information, advice and support about funding opportunities
- Effective use of Social Media – Raising profile, telling your stories – writing, planning, marketing and PR
- SAMH’s Mental Health Charter – An interactive workshop to look at the part clubs play in Scotland’s Mental Health and Wellbeing
- Disability Inclusion within Clubs – From the national perspective to local implementation; how clubs can work towards greater inclusion
Attendees can participate in two of these workshops over the course of the day.
A ‘marketplace’ will be set up where organisations such as governing bodies can set out a stall, with the opportunity to provide information on how they can support clubs.
Spaces cost £10 for the first club member and £5 for each additional member from the same club after that. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
