Our Aims

To provide ‘Leisure for Life’, helping people to live well and for longer

We will:

    • Change lives through healthy recreation
    • Grow an ethical and sustainable business
    • Provide a great customer experience
    • Develop our people to be the best
    • Build strong communities and effective partnerships

Our Values

Through the following employment values, we aim to position ourselves as leisure employer of choice for the region, providing opportunities for our people to grow and develop to give excellent career opportunities and providing the best possible service to residents in the areas we serve:

    • Fit for the future – We will give everyone the opportunity to train and enhance their skills by encouraging people to develop themselves and others. Creating and promoting ‘careers in leisure’.
    • Working as one – We will all work to the common goal of providing ‘leisure for life’ and support each other in all we do.
    • Trusted and honest – We respect the value and input of every person and at all times act with integrity and respect.
    • In the service of others – We will provide first-class facilities and services that are well-maintained, inviting and valued by our customers.
    • Free to do our best – Our culture and business processes will support people to act on their own initiative – with innovation being recognised and rewarded.
    • Caring for all – We will actively seek to involve everyone in all communities, working in partnership and with a passion for people.


“Our over-riding purpose is to provide ‘leisure for life’. Of course we will strive to provide a better quality of life and a longer life for everybody, but crucially, we are also seeking to make participation in leisure a habit for a lifetime too.

If we can help achieve that longer-term ambition, alongside our communities and partners, we can be proud to say that we have helped change lives through the power of, and participation in, active recreation”

Andrew Kolker – Chairman of the Board of Trustees
Peter Hartwell – Chief Executive
