ACTIVE ESSEX FOUNDATION
MAKING GREAT STRIDES

The Active Essex Foundation is an independent charity set up to use the power of sport and physical activity to engage and support the most marginalised groups across the county. The Foundation works with a range of community and grass roots organisations to develop projects that engage and empower local people.

In the past year we have focused on developing projects to engage young people who suffer from a number of inequalities including: poor mental health; those involved in or at risk of becoming involved in the criminal justice system; those living in areas of deprivation; those who may lack positive role models; and those who are not in education, employment or training.
