Get Berkshire Active is one of a network of 43 Active Partnerships (AP) across England. We are a charity with a social purpose to transform lives through Sport and Physical Activity. Funded nationally through Sport England we help to deliver the government strategy for Sport locally.
Inspired people and communities creating a happier, healthier more resilient Berkshire.
Our Mission is to be passionate about the value and benefit of Physical Activity. We will collaborate across all sectors, locally and nationally, using our skills, knowledge and resource to ensure equitable provision and participation in physical activity to address wider social outcomes and inequalities.
The pandemic changed the lives of individuals and organisations. Physical Activity became an important part of the support we provide to improve individual wellbeing, build stronger communities and help the entire nation to recover.
GBA is addressing the modern challenges through the implementation of GBA Strategic Intent.
If you believe in the power of Physical Activity & Sport to transform lives and communities then please join us in our quest to tackle inequalities and create a healthier, happier and more resilient Berkshire.
How We Operate
GBA is a strategic organisation working to bring partners, stakeholders and providers together to enhance what we all do for the benefit of Berkshire residents.
How We Are Measured
Iconic Bisham Abbey Sport Centre, home to Get Berkshire Active
GBA takes it measurement and evaluation very seriously and we are always looking to improve. We conform to the new UK Code of Sports Governance at Tier 3 (the highest level) and as a Charity we have a annual external audit. On an annual basis we are also assessed by Sport England and this has now become the formal Performance Measurement & Improvement Framework. This is now an independent assessment of our performance and is carried out by Right Directions under their Quest framework. Our first assessment under this system took place on 11-12 Dec 18 and we were delighted to have been assessed as 'Very Good'.
