Places for People Leisure and Fit for Sport Recognise Partnership Opportunity
Places for People Leisure are pleased to announce a new formal partnership with Fit For Sport, the UK’s leading experts in engaging and educating children, young people and families through activity.
Places for People Leisure who currently manage 113 leisure facilities on behalf of 35 local authority clients, currently work closely in partnership with Fit for Sport at several leisure facilities delivering holiday activity camps and a number of community engagement programmes which aim to support children, schools and families to become more active.
Due to the success of these programmes in engaging young children we are now looking to roll out this partnership model across the Places for People Leisure portfolio.
Fit For Sport currently run over 80 Ofsted registered Activity Camps every school holiday across England and are committed to providing childcare within a safe, supportive and fun environment. With the Places for People Leisure’s mission to engage our local communities, enhancing member experience and exceeding people’s expectations, the partnership will ensure a high quality service to support our local communities to be active, ultimately with the aim of creating even more ‘active places and healthy people’.
“We’re excited to enhance our community outreach and believe the partnership will help to engage all of the community,” said Glen Staite-Loveridge, Young People and Physical Literacy Manager at Places for People Leisure. “The partnership is a commitment to keeping children active and we believe that Fit For Sport will provide the expertise, professionalism and programming to ensure children have a great time at our activity camps and that they keep active during the school holidays.”
“Creating a positive experience of physical activity at a young age will ensure healthy habits are embedded for life,” says Dean Horridge, CEO-Founder Fit For Sport. “Places for People Leisure are the heart of the community and we believe this partnership will be a great opportunity to create active families and bridge the gap between schools and the centres.”
