Christchurch and District Sports Council

Christchurch and District Sports Council is a federation of local sports clubs, Christchurch Borough Council and other interested parties such as Active Dorset

Role and aims

The sports council meets regularly to exchange good practice, develop professionalism, drive local sports policy and consider funding applications from both clubs and individuals.

  • assess present and future sport and recreation needs

The role of the sports council is outlined in its  Christchurch and District Sports Council Constitution.

Christchurch and District Sports Council's policy for safeguarding children details the procedures to ensure safety and welfare of all young people, coaches and volunteers taking part in sport.
