Who we are

Yorkshire Sport Foundation is a National Lottery funded charity working across the nine districts of South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire, and part of a network of England-wide Active Partnerships.

We believe in the power of movement, physical activity and sport to change people’s lives, bring us together and tackle inequalities. We want as many people as possible to enjoy all the benefits being active can bring.
