Our Communities

Bristol; home of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge and SS Great Britain, Europe’s largest annual meeting of hot air balloons, Wallace and Gromit, Concorde Alpha Foxtrot and of course Ashton Gate Stadium; the home of Bristol City Football Club and Bristol Bears Rugby Club.

We are responsible for the delivery of sport-based interventions across the Greater Bristol region, formally the County of Avon, with a focus on helping communities live Active. Healthy. Happy. lives. We work with our partner schools, who act as hubs within their community, to deliver our services and programmes, working in partnership to positively impact the families living in these areas.

Alongside our delivery throughout Greater Bristol, we focus our efforts at specific wards, known as our ‘Five Key Wards’. These wards have been identified as areas in which we believe we can have the biggest impact and where sport has a vital role to play in breaking down barriers, these are:
Hartcliffe & Withywood
Lawrence Hill
Lawrence Weston

These wards are some of the most deprived areas nationally. Access to good quality sporting and social infrastructure can be hard to come by so our interventions are vital in helping to improve the life chances of young people living in these wards.
