SEN is the network and information provider for community sports enterprises at various stages of their development and covering a wide range of physical activities.
SEN collects and disseminates examples of best practice from community sports enterprises, support providers at all stages of their development, bring enterprises from different parts of the UK together so they can learn and share, run workshops and produce guides on non-sport specific issues facing community sports providers and generally provide support on their enterprise aspects.
SEN help train potential sports entrepreneurs on how to develop and run successful and sustainable providers for the benefit of their customers and communities. We also help educate sports/enterprise/community professionals on the various aspects of community sports enterprise, so they are better equipped to understand and support budding community sports entrepreneurs.
Community Sports Enterprise needs champions and SEN will highlight the great work done by so many people within the sector and ensure that they will act as role models and beacons.
We run regional events and medium-term, launch an Awards Programme to honour and highlight excellent practise within the world of community sports enterprises. Through our international network we add an increasingly international dimension to SEN.
A website, including a discussion forum where sports entrepreneurs across the UK and beyond can share ideas and experiences, will provide a key tool. Need-to-know information on how to make community sport vibrant, visible and viable.
