Support for professionals in the leisure industry

The professional workforce plays a significant role in ensuring the best possible experience for the people who are, or who want to be active. 

It is therefore important to ensure that the professional workforce feels confident, valued and supported. We want to support this sector to be recognised as professional and providing an excellent customer experience for Surrey residents. 



Active Surrey are proud to be an Employer Partner of The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA). 

CIMSPA is the professional development body for the UK’s sport and physical activity sector, committed to supporting, developing and enabling professionals and organisations to succeed and help the nation become more active.

CIMSPA members are part of a community that is recognised for the attainment and delivery of excellence. Becoming a CIMSPA member is far more than a commitment to delivering best practice, to developing oneself and being qualified. Members are representatives of a professional sector that is competent and confident in its ability to bring the value of sport and physical activity to the widest possible audience. 

Surrey's professional workforce are entitled to receive 20% off CIMSPA membership when joining through Active Surrey.

We have developed a series of events and training to help deliverers and professionals break down the barriers to people’s participation in physical activity and sport and make it an easier lifestyle choice for everyone.

The Activating your Community programme focuses on supporting and engaging the least active to get moving more. Events cover topics such as:

  • Mental health awareness for physical activity

  • Working with people with long term health conditions

Please visit the Activating your community page for the details of upcoming opportunities.
