The Sport and Health team works in partnership with schools, clubs, sports governing bodies and the County Sports Partnership (Derbyshire Sport) to provide and develop sporting opportunities for local people. This includes support with financial grants, development plans, club accreditation schemes and Coach Education.
Officers from the Sport and Health team are always on hand to support clubs across the district with various development issues so if you have a particular problem or a particular project you need help with then use the contact details below to get in touch.
South Derbyshire Sport is made up of individuals, clubs and organisations that take part in or have an interest in sport in South Derbyshire. The help of a number of the Districtís sportspeople has already been enlisted.
It has been set up to develop a strong voice for sport in South Derbyshire. This should help secure better facilities and more opportunities and as a result improve standards in sport across the district.
The Forum members have set the following objectives:

This refers to a scheme that is administered by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). The Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) Scheme has enabled many local amateur sports clubs that provide sporting facilities for the benefit of local communities to register with HMRC and benefit from a range of tax reliefs, including Gift Aid.
The rules about CASCs are very specific and full details about the scheme and how to register can be found at:
For CASCs in England and Wales, Section 64 of the Local Government Act 2003 provides the same relief that would be available to a charity (80 per cent mandatory relief), where the CASC property is wholly or mainly used for the purposes of that club and of other such registered clubs.
Some sports clubs provide facilities for and promote participation in more than one sport. These 'multi-sports' clubs can be structured in a number of different ways. They are usually unincorporated associations or companies limited by guarantee, with a management committee or board of directors. Clubs are free to organise as they see fit but not all of the different structures will qualify for CASC purposes. If you are a multi-sport club it will be necessary to confirm with HMRC whether your particular organisation and its structure qualifies for CASC status.
