The club is committed to using a sports-based community development approach in addressing the social problems faced in the area. This is based on both the club’s own experience as well as good practice developed elsewhere in the UK. The club will • Provide opportunities for increased sports participation in the area for people of all ages and use sports participation as a way of addressing health problems by increasing physical activity. • Make specific efforts with regards to: o The participation of young people in their late teens, addressing the nationally recognised problem of youth dropout in 14+ age groups o Opportunities for older people to be more active as part of an ‘active ageing’ • Provide ways of engaging young people with developmental pathways so that they are not at risk of being involved in crime or anti-social behaviour • Opportunities for local schools to use facilities, such as pre or after school clubs • Provide opportunities for skill development in sports,

What we'll deliver:

  • Build New Toilets
  • Plant new trees and built a community patio area
  • Provide a community base by re-modelling the building

Why it's a great idea:

The main internal space of the building will comprise of a large multi-functional community room. This space will serve a number of different functions as well as the different communities of Cramlington Town FC – supporters, residents, partner junior football clubs, the local authority and participants on the community programme. Available for private hire the multi-functional room will be both a key revenue driver for the club as well as a space for delivery of our football development and community benefit functions. The different functions include the following: • Training and classroom based activities that need a space larger than the classroom • Education, training and employment services • Advice and drop in sessions for local agencies • Meetings for local community groups • Pre-school ‘breakfast clubs’ and after school clubs for local schools • Smaller celebrations including children’s and adult’s birthday parties

Steps to get it done:

  • Create The Classroom
  • Insulate the building
  • Build New WashRooms

The l Development Plan for the building outlines on-going Continued Professional Development for staff, including development of coaching staff. It also includes on-going training for our volunteers and young people engaged on our planned community programme, a number of whom will volunteer for the club. We will employ professionally trained grounds people when and if needed who are skilled to maintain grass pitches. Bookings for the facility will be undertaken at the club office buy club / league staff. We are exploring a number of technical solutions to assist in facility booking, which will interface with the monitoring and evaluation system.
