At Active Nation we love to get beyond the four walls of a leisure centre, and deliver innovative activities out in the community to persuade people to be more active. Take a look at our Brand Map below and see how Active Nation's community projects can benefit you.
Education plays a big part of our mission, working with young people to help them discover sport and experience new activities. Working with local schools and colleges, we deliver a number of Physical activity programmes, like swim lessons, after school clubs, and even management of a schools sports facilities.
Over 10,000 children join us each week for swimming lessons,

As a charity we don’t want to be stuck within the four walls of a leisure centre. We love getting out into the local community and delivering activities. Our events do just that, inspiring people to take part in Active Warrior obstacle courses, Kids Tryathlons and Colour Runs.
Over 10,000 people have joined us for our Active Warrior obstacle courses to take on the challenge from ages 5-85 proving that anyone can have a go.
Whilst our Kids Tryalthons have worked with over 50 schools nationwide to offer children a chance to try free activities that they wouldn’t normally get to have a go at in their PE lessons, such a golf, skiing, climbing and more.
If you are eager to have a go at an Active Warrior or a Rainbow Rampage Colour Run, then visit www.activewarrior.co.uk
Our Kids Tryathlons work with local schools, so contact your nearest venue for details.
The award winning ActiveAbility programme is all about making sports and activity accessible to individuals with a disability.
In 2017 we helped over 1,200 people with a disability get active, delivering over 15,000 hours of fun across 105 different activities.
Active Ability makes sport and exercise accessible for disabled adults and children. We have sessions that suit everyone no matter what disability you have, making sport inclusive for all. Just call your local venue to find our more.
Research is a big part of our charities work. Making sure that what we are doing has public benefit, is helping to improve the lives and health of those taking part and something that is habitual long term.
Working with universities, governing bodies and private organisations we have helped to contribute to many nationwide studies that have changes the way we look at exercise.
If you would like to work with us on a research project please give us a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Active Community programme means that we get out of the leisure centre and into the open spaces and parks to deliver sports and exercise sessions.
We deliver over 32 activities a week in over 10 outdoor parks and open spaces across the city, attracting over 20,000 people to take part in a free activity.
At the moment this programme is operating within the Southampton area, but will soon be expanding its reach. From TaiCHi to Tennis, Archery to Sailing there is lots to get involved with. Visit www.parklives.com for more details and to book an activity.
Being physically active for 150 minutes or more per week is proven to reduce the incidences of over 20 chronic diseases. So health plays a big agenda in why our charity exists, and our message of being active has such importance to us. Our Active Health programme, gives us an opportunity to work with other health organisation to focus on this message.
Working with health organisations and technology companies we are working on developing an outreach programme and measurement tool for helping more of the nation to be active.
We are still in the development phase of this project, but more detail will be coming soon. In the meantime, if you think you can help, contact us by emailing email@example.com
There are lots of people who are brilliant and most definitely an inspiration to others! We work with lots of Active Heroes who share their stories to inspire others about life changing results from exercise, Active Buddies who want to team up with others to help them stay committed and focused on achieving their goals, and Active Workforce’s who are teams of colleagues who exercise together to improve moral and absenteeism.
Each month we focus on different Active Heroes to share stories of those that have an inspirational story to tell, featuring on our website and often national media. It’s a difficult thing to measure the success of, but we’ll never stop spreading the word of how great being active can be.
Check out our online news section of the website for lots more detail and inspiring articles. Visit www.activenation.org.uk/thelocker
