Hub Funding Confirmed for 2017/18

We are delighted to announce that sportscotland have committed to invest up to £20,000 per annum over the next twelve months (2017-18) to support the continued development of South West Edinburgh Community Sport Hub.

Oriam will continue to fund the Hub to at least £10,000 per annum for 2017-18 with the aim of ensuring the Hub's key work is sustainable beyond 31st March 2018. City of Edinburgh Council will continue to provide strategic support to the Hub over the next year.

The Hub will continue to aim to be "at the heart of South-West Edinburgh communities, developing a connected and accessible micro-sport system," and will be achieved by continued focus on the following priorities:

  1. Enhancing Sport - Collectively enhance the provision of sport and physical activity within the South-West of Edinburgh.
  2. Enhancing People - Actively engage and develop people to enhance the sport provision in the South-West of Edinburgh.
  3. Effective Promotions - Ensure opportunities to participate and deliver sport within the locality and beyond is well marketed and communicated.
  4. Effective Partnerships - Develop structures and partnerships within the Hub that have a positive impact on the provision of sport and physical activity in South-West of Edinburgh.

Chris Sellar, Chair of the Community Sport Hub, said "we are very pleased that sportscotland & Oriam have committed to continued funding. We look forward to working with all the key partners involved to develop sport in this local area, and working towards Hub sustainability"
