What are Active Partnerships?
There are 43 Active Partnerships across England who work collaboratively with local partners to create the conditions for an active nation, using the power of sport and physical activity to transform lives.
Active Partnerships are locally based strategic organisations that recognise that activity levels are affected by a complex system of influences and no single organisation or programme create sustainable change at scale. By adopting a collaborative whole system approach, Active Partnerships seek to make active lifestyles the social norm for everyone and address the worrying levels of inactivity in society.
They do this by creating an in-depth understanding of the needs of the local community, brokering cross sector partnerships, supporting the development of a welcoming and inclusive workforce, engaging communities and share learning of what works locally.
In particular, Active Partnerships focus their efforts on inactive people and under represented groups who will benefit the most from an active lifestyle.
A unique feature of the Active Partnerships is their independence, working across all sports, activities, providers and audiences, focused on the needs of their local communities.
