The Model (Area Based):
Using the catchment area of Ullapool High School Ullapool Community Sport Hub will be inclusive of and open to all the community sports clubs, physical activity groups, facilities and interested members of the community within that area. The facilities at the Macphail Centre (attached to the High School) and the Lochbroom Leisure Centre will provide the focal point and meeting place for the project.
Ullapool Community Sport Hub is a partnership between local community groups and key professionals representing Ullapool HS, Active Schools, Facilities, Youth Work, Sports Development Officers and sportscotland that have come together to collectively help develop their local sporting landscape.
‘Ullapool Community Sport Hub will provide a platform to make a positive difference to the local sporting landscape.’
Who is Involved:
Initially a group of key partners in the area met to begin to scope the project and to collectively start to map the locally sporting landscape – this group of was made up of the Head Teacher of Ullapool High School, Head of PE, Principle Sports Development Manager for the Highlands, sportscotland’s Partnership Manager, Local Active Schools Coordinator, Local Facility Manager, Local Youth Development Officer, School Pupil & Community Sport Hub Officer. This group have collectively helped take the project to the community and have hosted a community engagement event and follow up meetings.
