The Community Sports Trust is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company.
Our goal is getting more people moving more and living longer: Over the past four years Village Games has helped thousands of people across Derbyshire get up off their sofas and start doing regular physical activity. Our approach proves you can create a demand for exercise and that – with support - sedentary people can change their behaviour. We are now launching a new project in Nottinghamshire, Fit 4 Life, which aims to help people with Type 2 Diabetes become more active by getting involved in community sport and physical activity.
Our mantra is making activity sustainable and affordable: We break down the barriers that stand in the way of neighbourhoods doing regular activity - fear and embarrassment; lack of confidence and motivation; the cost of sessions; travel and childcare.
Our method is facilitating not delivering: We talk to local people, listening to what they want, bringing communities together. We work with what’s there – finding venues and instructors on the doorstep; training volunteers; forming partnerships.
