Sport and leisure

The Active in Barnsley Strategic Plan (2018-2021) sets out our priorities for getting Barnsley more physically active and making sure all of our residents have the opportunity to benefit from this.

Our vision is for a healthy and proud Barnsley where active living is part of everyday life for everyone.

The Active in Barnsley Partnership will oversee and drive the strategic plan, but will need the support and involvement of everyone involved in physical activity to influence a population-sized change.

We've identified five priorities:

  • active schools and colleges
  • active workplaces
  • active spaces (including parks)
  • active communities
  • professional and volunteer networks

This forms part of our Town Spirit commitment to #LiveIt and help you stay healthy.
