    About the Trust

    GLL helps build active and sustainable communities through partnership working. We work to a social agenda and are committed to providing accessible community facilities for all. We believe in offering value for money.

    Our services are wide ranging and offer current and potential partners a range of solutions and options for enhanced service delivery, increased value for money and tangible added value.

    We’ve been operating leisure centres since 1993 and it’s probably what we’re best known for. Our key services are leisure, libraries, health, education and sports development, operating under the Better brand.

    GLL manages over 270 leisure centres in partnership with more than 50 local councils and sporting bodies. In all the areas we operate in, we encourage people to improve their health and happiness, by leading an active lifestyle.

    We’ve grown from strength to strength, working in partnership with local authorities, public agencies, sporting organisations and local communities across the UK. With over 270 leisure centres hosting a range of facilities and activities, with more than 13,000 staff and 58 million visitors a year, GLL really makes a difference.

    A cornerstone of our social delivery is through our Sport and Legacy Team, who have a clear focus on getting more people, more active, more often. The Sport and Legacy team play a key role in delivering the wide ranging legacy commitments we have made, ensuring the benefits of London 2012 are maximised for all our current and future partners.

    We’re proud to work with a number of sporting organisations, to increase the awareness, participation and inclusion of local people into various sports.

    These include:

    The London Development Agency
    The London Mayors Office
    Community Leisure UK
