A force for good
We are the south coast’s leading operator of leisure and event venues and a social enterprise that designs and builds engaging experiences to inspire people and enrich lives.
With more than five million visits a year our organisation is changing lives and we are at the heart of the UK’s growing social economy.
Last year, we hosted more than 500 events, sold over half a million cultural, sporting and entertainment tickets, clocked up 4.5 million leisure centre visits, welcomed 59,000 conference and exhibition delegates and generated an estimated £53 million in economic benefit for the local economy.
It’s about having a vision
We’re driven to do more to support the and improve the quality of people’s lives and to promote health and wellbeing to the whole community. We are a social enterprise meaning that we provide services that generate profits that are re-invested into our social objectives – profit for purpose.
Our mission is;
To encourage inspiration and excellence through market-leading leisure, culture and events by providing a positive experience that enriches lives and improves the wellbeing of people and communities.
Every pound counts
By choosing to purchase your leisure membership, event tickets or having a coffee with friends at one of our outlets supports us to do even more. Since 2010, we’ve brought over £250 million to further our three social objectives:
1. Encourage more people to take part in physical activity – by providing leisure facilities to encourage active communities and improve health and wellbeing. 2. Attract bigger entertainment audiences – with a diverse range of cultural and artistic events that appeal to a wide variety of tastes. 3. Deliver economic benefit – by hosting major conferences, exhibitions and events that benefit the local, regional and international economy.
Join our team. With more than five million visits to our venues each year, no two days are ever the same. Our venues are recognised by industry bodies including QUEST, UK Active and Community Leisure UK as being some of the best in the UK, testament to the work of our dedicated team. Our people make the difference.
We’re always on the lookout for talented people to join us at the forefront of the social enterprise movement.
