About us

We are a sports charity that is passionate about helping people become more physically active and enjoy the benefits that an active lifestyle can bring.

We started our work in April 2006 when we became a registered charity and the Active Partnership for the West of England. This means that we work across the four Unitary Authorities of:

by championing sport and physical activity. 

We are one of 43 Active Partnerships across England. We work collaboratively to create the conditions for an active nation and use the power of sport and physical activity to transform lives. 

We have a team of 14 staff and 7 trustees who work to deliver a range of programmes that are funded by a number of different organisations including Sport England, Active Partnerships and the National Lottery.

Some of our main activities include:

  • Working with a wide variety of local partners, enabling the delivery (directly and indirectly) of nationally-funded sports programmes
  • Providing leadership, expertise and resources to improve the variety and accessibility of sporting opportunities for local people by actively developing clubs, coaching and volunteering
  • Supporting sporting activities in educational environments; schools, colleges and universities
  • Connecting with community organisations, such as disability, culturally diverse communities, women and girl’s groups, social housing and community health organisations to get more people involved in sport and physical activity.

If you are passionate about sport and physical activity in the West of England, then we would love to hear from you and see if we could work together. Get in touch with us by emailing info@wesport.org.uk or call 0117 328 6250.
