Working for all ages & abilities

Everyone at Active Surrey is committed to the belief that moving more can have a transformative effect on people's lives, no matter what their circumstances.

From improving mental health to boosting community cohesion, sport and activity does far more than simply get us physically fit.

On this page you'll find examples of how we collaborate with partners to 'change the system' and stories which illustrate the role that physical activity can play in helping individuals lead better lives.

Fit & Fed with Saputo

Thanks to sponsorship from Saputo Dairy UK we ran activity clubs for under 12's over the COVID summers of 2020 and 2021, which continued in the half term holidays of 2022.

Focusing on those from disadvantaged areas, the early Fit and Fed camps (PDF, 1.4Mb) ensured that children could be kept engaged and active, while receiving healthy meals to ensure they didn't go hungry.

During periods disrupted by lockdowns in the first years, the camps enabled children to mix safely and played a vital role in preparing children for a return to a structured school environment.

Specsavers Surrey Youth Games

For two decades this event has helped a generation of young people find a route into a sport that suits them. And thanks to support from our forward-thinking councils, every bit of training is free.

Coronavirus caused its cancellation for two years running but it returned with renewed focus in 2022, continuing on the path of making a difference to the lives of those young people who have the most to gain in our communities. 

You can learn more and read the 2022 impact report on the dedicated Specsavers Surrey Youth Games page.
