What we do

Our aim is to get 'more people, more active, more often'. 

We do this by:

  • Supporting local sports clubs and community groups with funding applications, coach development, volunteer and participant recruitment
  • Delivering beginner-level participation programmes for people currently not active
  • Working with national governing bodies of sport to deliver national programmes within St Helens
  • Working with local partners to tackle inequalities in sport and physical activity
  • Delivering school sport events as part of the school games programme

Have a look at our new St Helens Active Lives Strategy 2022-27.

Leisure centres and sports pitches

Leisure centres and sports pitches are managed by the council's leisure services team, 'Go Active'. For more information or to hire a facility, please visit the Go Active website.
