Club Resources

On course for the future, is a framework for developing your boating organisation.  The series of guides aim to help your club, centre or organisation to check and challenge where you are and to help ask some of those 'harder' questions about the current and future direction of your club.

“We work to ensure that boating is accessible and attractive to the widest audience. We strive to be inclusive, share our expertise, work with partners and embrace diversity”

The aim of the Volunteer Development Framework is to help your club or organisation review and strengthen its practices with regards to volunteering and in doing so create a sustainable volunteer culture for the future.
