Carol Ross

Service Development Manager


Hi, I am Carol Ross and I am the People Development Manager at Active Lancashire and part of the management team.

My role is really interesting managing the strategic theme of People and Places - namely Clubs, Coaches and Volunteers. This includes working with partners to develop coaches/ volunteers, helping clubs to be sustainable and trying to secure funding to support this work in the County. I also work with colleagues to develop and deliver programmes such as Satellite Clubs, Positive Together and Challenge through Sport to provide opportunities for people from different backgrounds to gain training, employment and volunteering opportunities in sport - as well as increasing participation.

My background is quite varied - including teaching history; personnel management at Marks and Spencer; training consultancy; working for the Lancashire Training and Enterprise Council and then moving into Business Link Lancashire.

In terms of sport my efforts are more around keeping fit through Pilates, walking and some cycling. For years its been ferrying my sons to all their sporting activities - so probably time to up my game!

Please get in touch if I can help
