sporta's second Time to Trust conference will cast the net wider than cultural and leisure provision, promoting the Trust model to local authorities also considering how best to deliver their public health and health and social care services.

The day-long symposium, taking place on 10 July in Central London, is aimed at local authorities and other public bodies looking at proven alternative service delivery options, as well as existing Trusts keen to reinforce their offer and keep up to date with emerging issues impacting their sector.

Brian Leonard, CEO of sporta said: "Trusts are a significant provider of cultural and leisure services, with a proven track record of service improvement, investment and efficiency. The sector has expanded to deliver a range of services that include health and social care and public health initiatives.

"At a time when resources are scarce, with increased pressure 'to do more for less', and with a Government committed to transferring the delivery of public services to social enterprises, there is no better time to consider the trust option."

sporta, which represents more than 100 Trusts across the UK, has brought together a range of experienced speakers using real life examples to demonstrate:

- What is involved in setting up a Trust- What to avoid

- New opportunities for the model in public health and health and social care- Impact and public benefit

- The commissioners' perspective

Delegates will also hear about the latest position on proposals for the treatment of concessions on business rates in the new local government finance system, being introduced from April 2013.

Headlining the event will be Peter Kelly, Director of Public Health for Stockton on Tees Borough Council, who is one of the first new-style Public Health Directors. Kelly will cover the new opportunities and benefits for providers in delivering leisure related health programmes. Robin Strang, CEO of Xcite West Lothian Leisure, which manages 9 venues throughout West Lothian, will deliver a session on Measuring Social Impact.

Leonard continued: "The event will examine issues surrounding the future management of culture and leisure services, health and social care and public health initiatives. It will provide local authorities with background on different methods of outsourcing these services and debate the benefits of forming trusts as a cost effective and community-led approach to running facilities."

The event is being hosted by Winkworth Sherwood solicitors and parliamentary agents, and will take place at the company offices near London Bridge. Anyone wishing to attend should contact Sarah Morter at Leisure-net Solutions on 01603 814233 or email [email protected] for a booking form.

The conference will cost £145 for the first delegate and £115 for a second delegate. A discounted rate is available for members of sporta, CLOA and CIMSPA.
