Active Surrey is part of the ongoing Workplace Challenge, a sport and exercise employee benefit scheme, designed to help businesses support their employees in building exercise into the working day. Employees who live or work in Surrey can sign up for free and access local, affordable sport and fitness sessions to get whole workforces more active together.
We also have workplace packages for organisations, which include free NHS health checks, and can organise bespoke online events, pedomter challenges, courses to help beat stress or start a lunchtime running club and offer links to instructors in other 'office friendly' activities.
