Active Nation and the City of Southampton scoop award

ACTIVE Nation’s ActiveAbility programme has been awarded Healthy Partnerships of the Year at the ukactive Flame Awards.
Active Nation is a national charity on a mission to make physical activity more accessible to everyone. Its project team first launched ActiveAbility in Southampton almost three years ago and has since carved the path of disability sport and physical activity in the entire Solent region.
Funded by Sport England, the programme is aimed at giving people with disability across the country more opportunities to get in to sport. In three years it’s seen more than 27,000 activities delivered and recruited just shy of 2,000 individual adults with disability to regular activity programmes. The goal now is to develop new partnerships to expand the programme across the south and nationally.
Max Bradbury-Knight, who oversees ActiveAbility, said: “Much of the success of this programme is down to the incredible partnerships ActiveAbility Southampton holds with key stakeholders and partner delivery organisations within the city: NHS, Solent University, University of Southampton, Southampton Voluntary Services to name a few. This award recognises what is possible when a city works together.”
