Active Essex – Helping you keep active and stay well

Active Essex is one of 43 Active Partnerships across England, working with community partners to increase participation in sport and physical activity across Greater Essex.

They are a publicly funded organisation, hosted by Essex County Council, whose aim is to make sport and physical activity accessible to all Essex residents.

To get 1 million people active by driving and sustaining participation in physical activity and sport.

Working with our partners, we will create the opportunities and resources to achieve this, reducing inactivity and developing positive attitudes to health and wellbeing in communities across Greater Essex.

  • Sharing information about activities, events and opportunities for people to get active across the county
  • Supporting the professional development of those working within / or interested in the Sport and Leisure sector. This includes managing the Active Essex and Coach Core Apprenticeship programme, running training courses for coaches and referees and sharing further development courses
  • Signposting funding and grant opportunities for organisations, community initiatives and individuals
  • Supporting schools across Greater Essex to increase participation amongst children and young people
  • Increasing accessibility and raising participation within disability sport, through our All Together ambassador scheme
  • Driving female participation in sport and physical activity through our ‘This Girl Can Essex’ ambassador scheme and ‘Women Like Us’ festivals
  • Working as a key partner in the delivery of the Essex Local Delivery Pilot (ELDP). Essex is one of only 12 places in the country to be part of this game changing Sport England initiative and will benefit from a share of around £100 million of National Lottery funding to support participation in the most deprived areas of the county


  • Effective collaboration and delivery with partners and localities
