Sports Strategy

Sports and Fitness Development

The Trust’s Sport and Fitness Department consists of the Westway Sports Centre, Portobello Green Fitness Club and the Community Sports Team.

Key to the achievement of the Trust’s charitable objectives are the sport and fitness development programmes which are run in the Trust facilities and in the community. These programmes are:

Either specifically targeted at groups and individuals who might not normally take part in physical activity, or may not be attracted to using the Trust’s facilities for a variety of reasons.

Or they are geared to giving young people the chance to improve their skills in a particular sport with the possibility that they might realise their full potential in that sport at whatever level that is.
