They have a limited number and they will be given out on a first come, first served basis. So, of you are a volunteer who runs a club, group or organisation or if you are thinking of setting up a voluntary club but would like some extra support and advice, get in touch with them and bag a Run A Club licence.

 

What is Run A Club?

Run A Club is an online, easy to use, administration system for volunteers who run community clubs and groups.

You’ll get all the necessary support you need to set up, manage and run your own community club or group – whether it’s a sports, youth, health, faith, residents, toddler, music or arts club, for any age and any community.

Kirklees Council is able to offer a limited number of free licences to use Run A Club for volunteer run organisations in Kirklees. The licences are free for a period of two years.

 

Testimonials

When you’re a volunteer running a club, you often don’t have much time to spare and you want to pour your energy into the club and its members. It is really important to me to have a system that I can rely on to provide me with information simply and quickly and that aids me rather than distracts me from running my club. RunAClub has certainly provided that.

- Marc Balkham, Founder Band Together

Using RunAClub means our Thursday football runs smoothly. Recently our key organiser was injured and has been unable to play, but because RunAClub records all our members, it allows us to communicate with our members for their availability and record their subs.

- John Clark, Thursday Footy Club Organiser
