Live Active Leisure is proud of the number of industry standard awards and recognition that it has received in recent years that recognise our staff's commitment to providing the highest levels of service for our customers and partners.
Our list of achievements include:
Social Enterprise Award
In 2010 Live Active Leisure was awarded the Social Enterprise Mark. This was achieved through meeting specific criteria that demonstrate we are working primarily for social goals; this means we operate to benefit people.
As the first Leisure Trust in Scotland to be awarded the Social Enterprise Mark, it's something we are very proud of. Social Enterprise companies do things differently from typical businesses, because they are driven by a social mission and they are focused on the community that they serve.
ISPAL Active Programme
The ISPAL programme aims to acknowledge, reward and help improve organisations that contribute to improving the health of their community, employees or other stakeholders through physical activity interventions and in 2011 Live Active Leisure achieved this award.
This is what they said about Live Active Leisure:
"Live Active Leisure play a leading role in promoting physical activity to improve health and well being of the community of Perth and Kinross. It is evident that they play a central, and, also, driving role in contributing to reducing health inequalities through their work with community planning/health partners."
