    Our mission

Actively making a difference

We believe passionately in the power and impact of sport and physical activity to transform lives and to keep people living well. We achieve this by working closely and collaboratively with our partners to give people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds the means and places to get active.

How we’re doing it

Through the power and potential of sport of physical activity, we create the means and inspiration for everyone to get moving and lead healthier and more prosperous lives. We’re here as the limitless source of positive energy that drives everyone forward.

Using sport and physical activity we’re here to support people who face the greatest inequalities every day. Those who are the least active and whose physical and mental health would benefit the most from being more active or from being part of a social sport or activity group.

Consciously making a difference

As a charity and a Sport England System Partner we are conscious of ensuring best value and maximising the funding that we receive so that we truly make a difference to the people and places we serve.  We are residents at 1 Mill Street, a co-working space with a number of startups, charities and small businesses. The ethos is a charitable and philanthropic one and we have accessed a community of similar minded people from a range of sectors based in a community that we serve.  Check out our Environmentally Friendly and Climate Conscious page for more about how we are consciously making a difference.
