At Your Trust, we welcome over 800,000 people through our doors every year. As the guardians of high-quality leisure centres, Touchstones Museum and Gallery, Local Arts Resource Centre, Hollingworth Lake Adventure and Water Activity Centre and events venues at Middleton Arena and Heywood Civic Centre, we are able to offer these exciting spaces that truly provide something for everyone.

However, did you know that Your Trust is much more than our leisure centres and cultural venues?

We have listened to what you, our community, have told us that you need to stay active, creative, happy and healthy. Today, we are proud to offer a diverse programme of specialist health, wellbeing and creative activities across the whole of our Borough, helping a further 20,000 people every single year.

Through these community activities, we are able to impact the lives of local people who need us the most:

  • We help children and young people enjoy positive physical and mental wellbeing through sports and creative activities, working alongside their parents, carers and schools.
  • We ensure that individuals with additional needs or disabilities have equal opportunities to stay healthy and well, running a whole programme of inclusive activities including dance, yoga and cycling.
  • We empower individuals experiencing long-term health conditions including cancer, dementia or stroke to protect their health and independence, through groups, classes and individual support.

We cannot achieve any of these amazing things this alone. We rely on the generosity of wonderful, dedicated partners and community members, people just like you, to deliver these activities which help thousands of local people every month to live a better life.

From volunteering to deliver sessions, to sharing news of our activities with your friends and neighbours, to offering donations to keep this work going, your support makes all the difference.
