About our UKSPF project

Our project will establish Brendon Lawrence Sports Centre as a sustainable hub and connect with key local outreach venues, especially King Edward Park

The funds will:

  • Improve the fabric of the building creating a more sustainable, energy efficient premise including a new efficient heating system.
  • Create new employment opportunities for roles including an Active Community Co-ordinator delivering activities.
  • Sustain existing sport and facilities roles, whilst creating income generating opportunities while procuring grant income.
  • The creation of an ‘UrbanLab’ at KEP, where local young adults will repair, improve and update the unfinished skatepark.
  • Secure the delivery through trusted partners, who already have a relationship with families, ethnically diverse communities and our older residents in the area

These improvements will ensure sustainability as a local community venue.  Reducing crucial overheads through energy saving and platforming space to key partner organisations:  Nottingham Forest Community Trust, Nottinghamshire Cricket Club and Skate Nottingham

Familiar activities such as football and cricket will be offered, alongside this we will offer more unique and less accessed sports such as skateboarding.  Activities will focus on inclusion, excellence and on engaging priority groups.

This project supports the opportunity to secure BLSC as a local hub for older peoples physical activity

The developments and activities will provide a variety of volunteering and paid work-experience for local young adults.
