Our Charity

Who are Active Fusion?

We are a charity based in Doncaster striving to enable children and young people in Yorkshire to be physically active.

Young people in Doncaster and across the UK are facing diminishing levels of mental and physical health. Exercise is proven to enhance fitness levels and improve mental health, however, young people in our region are not achieving the recommended amount of daily physical activity.

We’re striving to buck this trend by delivering high quality Physical Education lessons in schools, by training teachers and school staff to become more confident and proficient in their teaching of Physical Education, through holiday sports camps and by giving young people the opportunity to enhance their qualifications, confidence and communication through sports leadership and apprenticeship opportunities.

Positive experiences

Children and young people are much more likely to continue exercise and develop healthy habits as adults if they have a positive experience of physical activity in childhood.

Our mission to help children develop a love for physical activity, unlock their potential and be the best they can be underpins all of the work we do.
