Club Support

Here at Active Lancashire, we value the work and achievements of all local clubs and groups that contribute to physical activity and sports opportunities across the county. We know how valuable you are to the local communities you serve, not only for the activities you provide but for all the extra support, networking and other opportunities that come from being part of a community club or group.

We are here to provide support and guidance and to help your club be stronger and more sustainable.

Have your say!

We want to hear from you.
