At Active Cheshire, we have a very clear goal. Mandated by Sport England, our aim is to get 50,000 more people, more active, more often, by 2017, for the health and wellbeing of local residents.
As an established charity of 25 years, we invest more than £500,000 each year on behalf of Sport England, Cheshire West and Chester Council and other partners. We use our connections and local insight to commission programmes of activity that will enable schools, clubs, leisure operators, businesses, community groups, colleges and universities to sustain and grow participation themselves.
Together, we can get more people, more active, more often.
We are one of 49 county sports partnerships (CSPs) across the country delivering Sport England programmes at a local level to increase the number of people taking part in physical activity and sport. We use our unique local knowledge, influence and insight to ensure that national funding and resources reach the places where they will have the most impact on participation.
As a charity we work closely with our key national investor, Sport England, as well the three local authorities, Cheshire West & Chester, Cheshire East and Warrington. We also generate our own income streams through various products so we are not totally reliant on grant and contract funding.
