Across East Northamptonshire we have an Active Communities Service who works with local organisations to get local communities more active.

Through external funding and grants along with strong partnership working across East Northamptonshire, the Service, through their active communities Plan, develops a range of projects, activities and physical activity programmes for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. We also develop additional programmes in our leisure centres and support with local events, schools and clubs in East Northamptonshire.
