Active Communities

active community outreach programme

Freedom Leisure has a strong background in Sport and Health development starting the first GP referral programme in the country over 20 years ago, with our Hailsham centre in East Sussex recently winning the ‘Rehab Facility of the Year 2016’ award at the National Fitness Awards.

We are immensely proud of our many existing Sports Development teams based around the country at the different contracts we mange, who are all responsible for delivering great community initiatives.

A few examples are; walking sports, dementia swimming, parkour programmes, Friday night projects and youth disability and schools games – all of which are designed to engage different, sometimes underrepresented groups.

And the good news is…. East Northamptonshire now has one too!

Xplorer Family Treasure Hunts

Freedom Leisure are working in parnership with British Orienteering on a programme called Xplorer. 

  • Xplorer is a fun friendly navigation challenge that is educational and gives children a sense of adventure as they explore he park to find the hidden markers.
  • It involves a healthy mix of physical activity and decision making that the whole family can enjoy together. 
  • Xplorer is the perfect outdoor activity for primary and pre-school children and their families.   

On Tuesday 20th March 3.30-4.30pm Freedom Leisure will be running our first session at Spencer Park in Rushden.   

Spencer Park will continue to have monthly sessions on the last Tuesday of every month thereafter.

Come are meet are qualified orienteering team and pop by on your way home from school.

building an active community together

We are working with the council to devise, develop and implement the brand new active community outreach programme, which means that there really will be something to help everyone be active.

Plus, we know that at times it can be tough to get to a centre, so we plan to do more out and about in the community – delivering programmes with added investment in more rural areas.
