What we do

Our work enables change (through sport)


Financial Sustainability

Dumbarton FC

At a crucial point in the club's history, the majority owners of Dumbarton Football Club appointed Movement to test the sustainability of a proposed new stadium development.

Financial projections, sensitivity and pricing analysis provided a clear view on the financial potential of the development.

A fan survey, stakeholder interviews and many hours of discussion served to highlight key issues and produce a set of clear recommendations that provided a path towards a sustainable future.


Asset Transfer


Brambles, a forward-thinking charity in Ayr, recognised the need for practitioner support when they uncovered an opportunity to take over the operation of a tired sports facility in one of Scotland's most deprived areas.

Movement prepared Brambles for the asset transfer process including bid writing, advising on negotiation and setting realistic financial projections.

The result was clarity and confidence for a small charity at the start of a big challenge.


Reducing Grant Dependency

Canongate Youth

A 40-year-old youth work charity, facing a new reality of funding cuts, approached Movement to help them find and test new revenue streams.

We conducted a feasibility study into the prospects of launching a new out-of-school childcare service, including the design of innovative physical activity programmes.

Our work enabled the Board to make an informed decision during a challenging period.


Asset Transfer and Social Enterprise

The Crags Centre

The Crags is no ordinary sports centre.

In 2011 a group of basketballers reopened The Crags after it had been closed a year earlier.

Recognised as a best practice example in both asset transfer and social enterprise, The Crags has a disruptive business model that turns customers into volunteers and uses sport to enhance mental wellbeing.

Movement provides ongoing strategic leadership, including supporting an ambitious project to convert nearby land to social housing.
