Lee Folkard

Project Support Officer

My name is Lee, I am the Project Support Officer in the Children & Young People Team here at Active Lancashire and my role started in February 2021.

My work includes Satellite Clubs, Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Funding, Networking with grassroots clubs and National Governing bodies in regards to additional support and guidance in a range of areas.

I have over 16 years’ experience of working within Sports Development at Charity Foundations, Local Authority sites and also at the Football Association.

In my spare time, I spend a lot of time with my family but also run a local grassroots football club in Manchester.
I am a massive Aston Villa Fan and also like playing and coaching football and the occasional jog. My other passion is music and have been known to DJ a little.

If you need any support or guidance please don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
