Help us save clubs money

ECB logo - small version

ECB is working closely with the Sport and Recreation Alliance (formerly CCPR) on its survey assessing the financial health of sports clubs in the UK.

The information gained from the survey supports the lobbying work of the Sport and Recreation Alliance which aims to improve the lot for grassroots sport. It will also help us to understand your needs through, for example, informing us about changes in membership levels and the challenges you’re facing over the next couple of years.

Why Complete the Survey?

We appreciate your time is precious but to fight your corner we need as much real information as possible. The answers you give will feed into campaigning for reduced rates of VAT for sports clubs, lower utility rates, alcohol licensing costs, music licensing costs, drainage charges, Gift Aid, improvements to the CASC scheme, access to facilities and other important issues for clubs.

Only with your input can we, and the Sport and Recreation Alliance on our behalf, campaign properly for sports clubs.

We want the 2011 survey to provide us and the Sport and Recreation Alliance with facts and figures that will make people listen. The more clubs that complete the survey, the louder our voice will be. As a thank you, your completed survey will be entered into a draw to win one of a number of prizes including a session for your club with an expert who will advise on reducing your bills and provide money-saving tips, and two tickets to the Wimbledon Championships!

To take part in the survey, simply click on the link below and complete the survey as best you can. It will really help if you have your club accounts to hand (don’t worry, all the information you give will be completely confidential) and you may need to ask other members for information about the club. You can save your responses and come back to the survey later if you need to.
