1.2 About Leisureworld
We promote healthy and active lifestyles, giving communities access to safe environments and accessible facilities that help improve their health and happiness through participation.
But we also provide more than access. As a charitable social enterprise, we invest in our people and our communities. And it’s not just money: we also invest time and effort in training and developing our staff to be able to provide appropriate services and facilities that encourage the public to avail of our services.
Surplus money is reinvested into making those services even better, either both training our people and /or upgrading our facilities to be modern and relevant to the needs of the public.

With a focus on good quality, affordable services that people want – and all to make day-to-day life in our communities enriching.
