Setting up a club

Permission needs to be obtained from the senior manager at the location – this will range from an HEO Jobcentre Manager to possibly a G6 on a large site. This officer will also act as the official “sponsor” of the club – the role and respon­sibi­lities of the sponsor are detailed on the following page.

After permission has been granted the main steps to be taken are as follows:

  • gauge support and identify possible volunteers;
  • publicise the proposal and conduct a staff ballot to confirm agreement;
  • ask for nominations for office bearers and committee members; and
  • hold an initial meeting, to include elections.

Detailed information of the suggested process is available in the following document.
