ACTIVE Tameside has received a Quest award for being the third highest performing Active Communities team of 2017.
Linda De-Giorgio, people management business partner at Active Tameside, collected the award at the joint Quest NBS and CIMSPA conference at the Chesford Grange Hotel, Warwick.
This was the eighth Quest NBS conference, but was the first joint conference for Quest for facilities and Quest active communities.
The aim of the conference was to present a unique perspective on physical activity, including operational challenges and solutions.
Andrew Dwyer, head of education and sport for Active Tameside, said: “Active Tameside are delighted to achieve the award for third highest performing Active communities sports development team in the country.
“This has been achieved by great teamwork, along with progressive development of all services and frontline delivery staff which has all been developed going through the Quest active communities accreditation.
“Quest has contributed to whole team development allowing all staff to plan and deliver high quality services within the Tameside community.”
The award comes soon after Active Tameside’s Live Well service achieved an excellent rating from Quest, which is the highest possible rating.
Receiving both the award and the excellent rating has helped to show Active Tameside’s success in increasing participation and reducing inactivity – moving people in Tameside from being inactive to active.
Active Tameside is the brand name for Tameside Sports Trust, a not-for-profit organisation that runs health and leisure facilities across Tameside.
It partners with a wide range of local agencies and organisations to make health and fitness facilities accessible for all.
