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 Woking 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 commercial memberships, sporting events and discounted rates to local businesses and staff.

Our Active Communities Team in Woking works with Woking Borough Council, Woking College and local sixth forms to provide opportunities to volunteer with our teams. Please contact Eleanor Cranfield eleanor.cranfield@freedom-leisure.co.uk to find out current volunteer and placement opportunities.
