GSC Signposts Support Available

March 24, 2020

The Guernsey Sports Commission is acutely aware that sports organisations in Guernsey are already under threat as a consequence of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Commission has been gathering evidence and financial data from all sports on the island seeking to quantify the scale of the problem and ensuring we are best placed to be your voice speaking to Government to try to secure sufficient support to keep you all operating.

The Commission believes it’s important to have a unified approach at this time so we can ensure that all sports’ voices and challenges are heard and understood.

If you haven’t yet replied to Steve Sharman’s recent email requesting information about your current and possible future financial situation (including staffing) then please get in touch as soon as you can. You can also contact Steve on 07960 148377 if you would like to discuss your sport’s situation in further detail.

We will be doing everything we can to help.

In the interim, we will try to signpost to you some of the support that may already be available to you and your staff.

We know that many of those working in sport rely on the sport and activity actually taking place to generate income and whilst we cannot make any promises we can confirm that we will do everything we can to help.

Please feel free to contact Graham Chester , Steve Sharman or Jeremy Frith if you would like to talk through any concerns.
