The consortium has been recognised for successfully combining the strengths and experiences of all five partner organisations from CEO level to frontline deliverers. Since 2016, through integration and collaboration the partnership has created and delivered the Up & Active service, which has transformed tens of thousands of lives.

The service provides residents, many of whom who are often inactive and living with one or more life limiting long-term conditions, with the opportunity to significantly improve their lifestyle. The partnership works to understand, motivate and inspire individuals and communities to become more active in order to improve health outcomes.

Lyndsey Sims, CEO of Hyndburn Leisure Trust said;

‘I’m delighted that the Up & Active service has been shortlisted. Our partnership focuses on motivating and supporting people to improve their health & wellbeing and I’m thrilled that we’ve been shortlisted for a national award for the work that’s taking place in Hyndburn and neighbouring boroughs. We have a fantastic team and this well-deserved recognition is a reflection of the fantastic work our team carry out every day to support local communities.’

The Community Leisure UK National Awards will take place on the 22 May at the Lowry, Manchester.
