Strategy aims to make sport ‘way of life for all’

Sports clubs and organisations across Renfrewshire have been invited to contribute to a new strategy making sport a ‘way of life for all’.

A consultation event on Thursday 19 June at Gleniffer High School will give delegates the chance to express their views about developing sport in the area.

The event coincides with the publishing of an online survey designed to let even more individuals, clubs and organisations give their opinion.


The event invitation has been issued by Councillor Jim Harte, convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Sport, Leisure and Culture Policy Board.

Councillor Harte said: “Our aim with this strategy is to encourage more people to be active and to reach their full potential in sport – ultimately, to make sport a way of life for all.

“Our ideal would be to see more people, more active, in more places, more often.

“The strategy covers everything from school sports to sporting facilities in the community and we want the broadest set of views and opinions possible.

The consultation event at Gleniffer High is a great opportunity to do so and I’d encourage clubs and organisations to contact us and arrange to send somone along.”

Anyone interested in representing their sports club or organisation at the event can email culturalservices.els@renfrewshire.gov.uk beforehand to confirm their attendance.

The sports strategy and survey are available online at www.activerenfrewshire.co.uk

The strategy has been prepared jointly by Renfrewshire Council, Renfrewshire Leisure, Renfrewshire Sports Network and sportscotland.
