active workforce

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 Wealden a reason for not being as active. 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.

Corporate Membership Contact your local centre for information on reduced membership options for staff working in the Wealden district.

Our Active Communities Team in Wealden work with Uckfield Community and Technology College to provide opportunities to Sports Leader volunteers with our teams.
