Local authorities and leisure trusts are the dominant providers of a whole range of sports and leisure facilities, from swimming pools to gyms and sports stadia. Getting the relationship right between the local authority and leisure provider is essential to ensure the best result for both.
Whether you manage your leisure in-house, act as the leisure client manager or leisure contractor, all parties have a vested interest in ensuring facilities continue to excite and attract new users whilst retaining the existing clientele. In a time of austerity and diminishing budgets, subsidies (if any) need to be demonstrably seen to provide a benefit to residents and monies used productively.
This seminar brings together speakers from across the leisure spectrum to explore the issues posed and outline their own successful strategies for increased usage and income, often diversifying into areas that increase utilisation of the facilities and expand the remit of leisure into social care and health. Whilst leisure is increasingly a part of Health & Wellbeing, this seminar focusses on managing successful facilities and the investment and innovation that helps to ensure a bright future

Who should attend?

• Local Authority Directors of Leisure and Health
