Club Help website

Club Help is for volunteers in sport and recreation clubs to assist with all aspects of running a successful club. In just a few minutes you can see how your club is doing in any of the 9 areas of club management by completing an online assessment. On completion of an assessment you will be emailed a plan document with ideas to assist your club to improve where needed. You can also keep up to date with relevant industry news.
