Minimum Operating Requirements (MOR) & MOR+

Mor - How to complete the process

Introduction to Minimum Operating Requirements (MOR)

East Dunbartonshire Council and East Dunbartonshire Leisure & Culture Trust Minimum Operating Requirements (MOR) aims to support community groups and clubs achieve a safer environment and long term sustainability by reassuring the community that all groups / clubs meet a minimum criteria to operate within our facilities and community.
MOR will provide an online framework for all clubs and groups to show what they are doing, how they do it, and where they can improve.
 
The MOR has three levels offering a range of different criteria to support clubs and groups.
The levels are:
·    MOR Non-sports club
·    MOR  
·    MOR+

Our commitment to a safer and sustainable environment 

East Dunbartonshire Council and East Dunbartonshire Leisure & Culture Trust have decided that any groups or clubs wanting to use EDC and EDLC facilities, work in partnership with Sports Development, Active Schools or gain local funding must complete one of the levels of MOR.
Our aim is for the majority of our current community groups / clubs that operate within our facilities to have achieved MOR in 2019/20. We appreciate that it may take time for groups and clubs to meet some of the criteria therefore there will be a two year phased timescale if required for this to be completed. We have also created several supporting documents integrated with all sections of MOR to further support groups and clubs.

How to Apply for MOR

Applying for MOR non-sports club, MOR or MOR+ will be an online process with clubs required to provide evidence on completion in various formats.  
Additional details on the process of obtaining MOR and MOR+ and the full criteria for each level of MOR can be found in the dropdowns below or the diagram to the right.
