For more than 30 years, Belgravia Leisure has been working with Councils to achieve meaningful and measurable outcomes in connecting community to leisure.
We aim to support Councils in the successful delivery of their Health and Wellbeing Plans, ensuring strategic alignment with our programs and offerings.
When collaborating with our contract partners, our focus is to develop interdependent relationships that provide the best possible services to every person in our community. Our goal is to encourage people to get active and participate, regardless of diversity, disability or disadvantage.
We also want to ensure we’re working together with Council in a way that is as efficient and effective as possible. We are not only providing opportunities through our collaborative services but also ensuring the communities subsidising the costs of our aquatic facilities are receiving the best value from our services, programs and facilities.
Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Executive Manager Infrastructure Strategy and Climate Change, Davey Smith said, “Our work with Belgravia Leisure is a true partnering approach to deliver the best services possible to our diverse communities. There is no benefit of only one side (business) controlling all of the desired outcomes, collaboration is pivotal. To be successful, we must work together to deliver opportunities that engage communities both within and beyond the walls of our facilities.”
“If we are not taking into consideration Belgravia Leisure and we’re running an operation where Belgravia Leisure is losing money, it will result in a low standard of service produced for our community. Therefore, continually working together and communicating each other’s needs is of paramount importance. It’s also vital to ensure that when we do encounter issues, like, being faced with COVID-19, we work together on how to best navigate the situation.”
“We see our partnering approach with Belgravia Leisure as the best way to deliver our services to the community,” Davey concluded.
Belgravia Leisure’s State Manager Victoria/Tasmania, Kris Miller said, “Many of our teams who are running our facilities are also members of the community and they are an extremely valuable piece of the puzzle. They are not only valued staff but valued members of the community.”
As we begin to navigate our new world post COVID-19, we must all continue to communicate to the right people including our communities, to Council and one another.
