Swimming is a core activity offered through SLM Community Leisure Charitable Trust. Every year we support millions of people to improve both their mental and physical health through our in-pool activities.​

We manage Everyone Active’s 120 swimming pools across the country and all aquatic activities that take place in them. We have earned a fantastic reputation for delivering high-quality swimming lessons and work closely with aquatic clubs to provide development opportunities for children as young as three-months-old all the way through to elite swimmers.


Our core objectives are to increase participation and remove any barriers that prevent people from swimming.

Sports and Recreation

SLM Community Charitable Trust is also responsible for managing Everyone Active’s sports halls, squash courts and outdoor pitches, as well as the relationships with the hundreds of clubs and groups who use these spaces.


From walking football to children’s holiday camps, and wheelchair basketball to line dancing, SLM Community Charitable Trust connects people of all ages and abilities to fun, accessible and inclusive activities.


We work with industry partners to secure funding for a range of community-focused initiatives. These programmes help us to engage inactive groups with innovative sports and exercise programmes.

Provide and Preserve Good Health

We are on a mission to provide more people with the skills and knowledge to live longer, healthier and happier lives.


SLM Community Leisure Charitable Trust is determined to help more people realise the wide-reaching benefits of an active lifestyle. As well as providing improved access to physical activity, we support our local authority partners to tackle a number of current health challenges, including social isolation and healthy aging.



SLM Community Leisure Charitable Trust plays a vital role in making sports and physical activity accessible to everyone.


It is a subsidiary of Sports and Leisure Management Ltd, which was formed in 1987 and has since become one of England’s largest leisure contractors, operating under the brand Everyone Active. It currently manages 196 leisure and cultural facilities on behalf of 60 local authority partners.


SLM Community Leisure Charitable Trust delivers subsidised services, community-focused exercise programmes and outreach schemes to communities across the country through Everyone Active’s facilities.


The Trust protects key sports and recreational services from the pressures of profitability and ensures communities benefit from affordable, accessible activity opportunities.
