Community Sports Hubs

Community Sport Hubs

Active communities where everyone benefits from sport & physical activity.


What is a community sport hub?

A Community Sport Hub (CSH) is a collective of local sports clubs & other community organisations that come together to improve the contribution that sport & physical activity has on a community.

As part of the ongoing commitment to develop sport & physical activity in East Lothian, there are 6 Community Sport Hubs set up across each of the principle towns and their wider areas in East Lothian; Musselburgh, Prestonpans, Tranent, Haddington, North Berwick & Dunbar

The Hubs are a partnership between East Lothian Council, sportscotland, local community sports clubs and other community organisations to support and empower local people to improve sport & physical activity in their communities. 


How do community sport hubs work?

Our approach allows for each Community Sport Hub to be unique, however each are founded on the same three pillars:

Each pillar contains two key principles which link to sportscotland corporate strategy Sport for life 

Meeting community needs

Fostering community collaboration

Empowering community leaders

Across East Lothian, the Club & Community Sports Development Officers are on hand to work with local leaders. They provide support to help understand barriers and develop inclusive approaches that ensure everyone can get active. They help establish partnerships, and develop plans and resources to build capacity and capability in community organisations.
