"Big Issue Invest is the social investment arm of The Big Issue. When Sally applied for our Tech for Good programme, which invests in early stage social organisations who are using technology to support young people, we knew straight away Sally has come up with something ground-breaking that has the potential to create social impact in a systemic way. Sally and her team have been able to create a platform which is easy to use, cost effective and has the potential for clubs to collaborate and shares resources. It’s a fantastic idea, led by a fantastic CEO. We are really proud to be involved with RunAClub and look forward to working with them as they grow and continue to support young people.'
Nigel Kershaw OBE, Chief Executive of Big Issue Invest and Group Chairman of The Big Issue Company
"Simple solutions resulting from first-hand experience are usually the best. When I first spoke to Sally about her plans for RunAClub, I was struck by her deep understanding of what young people needed as well as her clear focus on how she and the team were going to deliver. It has been inspiring to see how the RunAClub toolkit has developed and hugely exciting that it is already helping hundreds of local clubs across the UK, with many more coming on stream every week. It has been a joy for Nominet Trust to work with such a committed, responsive and professional team at RunAClub."
Annika Small, CEO Nominet Trust
"We have a youth club in one of our market towns that runs three evenings a week and is staffed by a team of 5 paid part time workers and two volunteers. Most staff work just one or two sessions per week so that keeping each other informed of what has happened and what needs to be picked up, actioned and supported is a critical challenge. Enabling staff to access club recordings independently and remotely is a real solution. It helps maintain continuity of the club programme and give consistency to delivery of the work."
Richard Betterton, Youth Development Officer HVOSS
"NCVO is delighted to be in partnership with RunAClub; the innovative online toolkit provides support and choice for club leaders across the country who want to run their community group flexibly - on the club site, or from their kitchen or office. The growth of RunAClub, the understanding of what communities need, as well as the clear focus from Sally and the team has been phenomenal. It has been inspiring to see how RunAClub has developed and hugely exciting that it is already helping hundreds of local clubs across the UK."

“Recording critical client data, having a meaningful quality assurance system and bespoke documentation conforming to current legislation is the number one priority for every club. If legislation changes, your online documents are automatically changed so you need never worry. Purchasing a RunAClub licence is simply a no-brainer. Every agency,organisation or sporting club should have it!”
Mark Fenty, Managing Director GHoPA
“We are very excited to be able to offer RunAClub as a solution to some of our clubs: it will enable us to support more of our members than we are able to at the moment and we know that they are in good hands and are receiving additional support from the RunAClub team, especially if they haven't got everything they need from a management and governance point of view - and also if they are at an early stage of their journey as a club."
Kathryn Berry, Head of SPORTED Network Services
“Perhaps the best thing about the RunAClub package is that it has been conceived by someone who really knows what is needed in order to make it easier to establish and successfully run small local groups and community organisations.”
