The Participation Team aims to plan, deliver and promote a range of high quality, innovative physical activity

opportunities that will increase participation and make a positive contribution to the wider community.


We aspire to achieve this by raising awareness of the range of opportunities available that contribute to the health and overall wellbeing of the community.


With the experience and adoption of a multi-agency approach to provision, we are working towards providing sustainable sporting and physical activity

opportunities with sufficient exit routes into lifelong participation.


By responding to the needs of the community we are dedicated to provide new, inclusive and exciting physical activities for all, recruit, retain and develop volunteers and ensure equality and diversity in all that we do.
