28 Feb ESSEX SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY GROUPS SET TO BENEFIT FROM NEW INITIATIVE
An organisation which helps schools generate vital additional income by managing their facilities and matching them with local community groups is launching in Essex with two schools already signed up.
School Lettings Solutions, one of the fastest growing sport and leisure companies in the country, partners with schools, academies and colleges to fully manage their facilities at zero cost to the organisations, while linking them with local community groups in need of venues.
The business is expanding across the country and is looking to sign up schools in Essex, which are currently facing hundreds of thousands of pounds of funding cuts. Through its partnerships, School Lettings Solutions aims to help thousands more community organisations, from sports clubs to theatre schools, access facilities they couldn’t before.
School Lettings Solutions currently works with over 100 schools nationwide, helping them to make the best use of their facilities. They are already working with Harlow Fields School and Valentine’s High School in Ilford and hope to get many more on their books to provide local communities with better access to sport, education and leisure opportunities on their sites.
Director of School Lettings Solutions Scott Warrington said: “We’re really looking forward to partnering with more schools and academies in Essex. There is huge potential to provide more places for people of all ages to come together, which can only be a positive thing for local communities.
“At the same time, our partnerships provide a new stream of income for schools as their budgets come under more and more pressure.
“If you’re a school or a community group who think you’ll be able to benefit from our partnerships; we look forward to hearing from you!”
