Satellite Clubs

We work together with a diverse range of community partners across Lancashire, supporting a range of local activity offers that are designed around the needs and motivations of teenagers. Our aim is to provide them with positive, enjoyable experiences that make it easy for them to become active or to develop more regular activity habits.

The project is part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) growth programme in England, and brings together a range of partners such as housing associations, local authorities and third sector organisations to provide practical help and mentoring support to project participants.

Physical Activity in Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic Community
Insight

Physical activity among the Black, Asian and minority ethnic community (BAME) is lower than other groups; however, our understanding around this diverse population is still limited.

The aim of this research is to get a deeper understanding of the BAME activity levels and understand their barriers to participation, especially for women and those with long term conditions.

Active Lancashire Partner Conference
Insight

We hosted a Partner Conference with the view of bringing together likeminded partners to share learning on key issues within the Sport and Physical Activity sector, whilst also inspiring future work and our upcoming strategy for 2021-25. We were fortunate enough to be joined by a number of engaging keynote speakers such as Steve Fogg, Chair of the Lancashire Economic Partnership (LEP) and Managing Director of BAE Systems, Sakthi Karunanithi, Direction of Population Healthcare at Lancashire County Council and Justine Blomeley from Sport England.

We were the first people in Lancashire to see the LEP's new strategy which, for the first time ever, features a specific mention of 'Health' as a key priority.
