About Us

Our Mission Statement:

To establish Dorset as a place where people choose to enjoy an active lifestyle through participation in sport and physical activity.

We are one of 43 Active Partnerships across England. We work collaboratively to create the conditions for an active nation and use the power of sport and physical activity to transform lives.

The Active Partnerships national team is the improvement and innovation agency that leads, supports and represents Active Partnerships. The team is focused on learning what works locally and driving collaboration and impact across the network.

Sport England invests core funding into Active Partnerships to provide a set of core services to strengthen the local delivery of physical activity.

We run a wide range of programmes such as Satellite Clubs and the Dorset School Games throughout the county which aim to increase participation and we help to support the work of clubs, coaches, volunteers, educators and facilities.

Our partners include NGBs and their clubs, all tiers of the education sector, local authorities, sport and leisure facilities, the Health sector and many other sporting and non-sporting organisations. Through working with these partners we do all we can to get Dorset active.

As a Community Interest Company we are committed to reinvesting any surpluses we generate back into local opportunities for sport and physical activity.
