Ullapool Community Sport Hub

 

The Model (Area Based):

Using the catchment area of Ullapool High School Ullapool Community Sport Hub is 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.

Purpose:

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, physical activity and health and wellbeing 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.

Home of the Ullapool Feel Good Festival

The Feel Good Festival takes place annually in Ullapool and communities along the North West Highlands. It aims to provide information and opportunities to take part in activities and make connections that help support our physical and mental health and wellbeing.
We will be working with local and regional organisations to plan a programme offering a range of free festival events and activities in October 2022.
With events running in and around Ullapool, communities along the North West Highlands and online, the festival offers a chance to find ways to Feel Good for FREE this Winter.
