PUTTING HEALTHY LIVING AT THE HEART OF OUR COMMUNITY
Search Active Communities Experiences
We harness sport, activity and community spirit to make positive changes within those neighborhoods who need it most and pride ourselves on our place based, capability approach.
We work to identify, connect and share existing neighbourhood resources - building, land, people, their relationships, knowledge, capabilities, skills, experience and time, to create affordable and convenient sport and activity provision that the community feel a part of and have great influence over. Our sports zones create pathways to employment, education and good physical and mental health.
Community acceptance, trust and ownership are at the very heart of what we do. We build ACE sports and activity zones in partnership with the local community.
The theoretical underpinnings of our work incorporate both ‘place based’ and ‘capability’ approaches.
