Active Humber

Active Humber is a charitable company whose purpose is to help people of all ages and backgrounds to improve their health and well-being by taking part in regular physical activity and sport. Active Humber is also one of the 43 Active Partnerships located across England and as such receives funding from Sport England to carry out several functions to help achieve the Sport England strategy 'Towards an Active Nation' at a community level.

North Yorkshire Sport

North Yorkshire Sport is the Active Partnership that covers the seven local authority areas of North Yorkshire and the unitary authority of York. Our overall aims as an organisation are to promote and encourage increased participation in Sport & Active Recreation, whether as a participant, volunteer or coach, supporting the sports infrastructure (clubs / facilities / voluntary sector) and to create meaningful and lasting partnerships with a range of key partners interested in sport and the health & wellbeing of North Yorkshire residents.

Yorkshire Sport Foundation

Yorkshire Sport Foundation is a Lottery funded charity, supporting organisations across the nine districts of South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. We believe in the power of sport and physical activity to change people’s lives. Our vision is to create a vibrant, healthy and prosperous Yorkshire through sport, supporting the work of local, regional and national organisations.

What is an Active Partnership?

There are 43 Active Partnerships across England who work collaboratively with local partners to create the conditions for an active nation, using the power of sport and physical activity to transform lives. Active Partnerships are locally based strategic organisations that recognise that activity levels are affected by a complex system of influences and no single organisation or programme create sustainable change at scale. By adopting a collaborative whole system approach, Active Partnerships seek to make active lifestyles the social norm for everyone and address the worrying levels of inactivity in society.
