active workforce

We work with local businesses across East Northamptonshire to encourage employees to lead a more active lifestyle. We also offer a range of placement & volunteering opportunities. At Freedom Leisure we understand the importance of staying healthy.

Businesses are being asked to do more in terms of supporting their workforces to be healthier. From regular breaks and supporting employees to take part in sport and physical activity. Businesses face rising costs in terms of ill health and absenteeism at work, with the current cost to the UK economy around £15 billion per year. 

We want to get all people more active, including those who find their working life in East Northamptonshire a reason for not being as active as they may want. As ‘sitting is the new smoking’, we want to work with more local businesses to find out what their employees would love to do with us to get more active around their job. We offer a six week back pain yoga programmes to any workplace across the district and corporate memberships for employees looking to join Freedom Leisure.

Our Active Communities Team in East Northamptonshire works with Northamptonshire Sport and Oundle School to provide opportunities to volunteer with our teams. Find out current volunteer and placement opportunities below:
