Active Charnwood Alliance

The Active Charnwood Alliance, formerly known as the Charnwood Sport and Active Recreation Alliance (CSARA), is a partnership formed to make sport and recreation inclusive and provide opportunities for all within the borough.

Members of the partnership provide a range of services, funding, events/workshops and programmes for those already involved in sport or those thinking about giving it a try. The Active Charnwood Alliance website provides full details about all of these.

The Active Charnwood Alliance is made up of a main strategic board, consisting of three sub-groups;

  • Children and young people
  • Club, coach and volunteers
  • Active recreation

If you or your organisation/club would like to join one of the sub groups of the Active Charnwood Alliance please contact Andrew Doodson on 01509 634592 or email: andrew.doodson@charnwood.gov.uk.
