Trusts, as charitable social enterprises, can offer a much wider range and ways of delivering leisure and cultural services for local authorities and their communities than most other leisure providers. This seminar will explain more.

Trusts are a significant provider of cultural and leisure services, with a proven track record of service improvement, investment and efficiency. The sector has expanded to now deliver a range of services that includes health and social care and public health initiatives.

At a time when resources are scarce, with increased pressure “to do more for less” and with a Government committed to transferring the delivery of public services to social enterprises there is no better time to consider the Trust option for the delivery of a range of public services.

sporta, the organisation representing over 100 Trusts delivering cultural and leisure services in the UK, have brought together a range of experienced contributors using real life examples to cover:

• What is involved in setting up a Trust, and what is to be avoided!
• New opportunities for the Trust model in public health, and health and social care
• Demonstrating impact and public benefit
• The latest thinking on procurement issues
• Investment potential
• Hot issues of the moment
• Business Rates Relief
• VAT.

Who should attend?
This seminar is aimed at local authorities who are considering the Trust option, and other public bodies looking at proven alternative service delivery options, as well as existing Trusts who are looking to reinforce/expand their offer and keep up to date with emerging issues that are impacting on their sector.
