Time Credits at Westminster Leisure Centres!

Everyone Active is working in partnership with Spice and Westminster City Council to offer Time Credits members access to their well-managed leisure facilities, which have been successfully proven to encourage everyone to be more active. Whether you want to train in their gyms, play badminton, tennis or squash, or simply swim for fun, the friendly staff at the facilities will make sure you find what you are looking for. You can spend Time Credits to try fitness and exercise classes, and even go climbing!

Contract Manager Duncan Cogger, from Westminster leisure centre operators Everyone Active, said:

Our leisure centres are community hubs and provide people with opportunities to improve their health and wellbeing, try new activities and engage with other residents. Allowing people to spend their Time Credits in the centres will help to connect communities to their local facilities and encourage people to get more active.

The Westminster Time Credits project, run in partnership with Westminster City Council, launched in 2015 to support increased volunteering in the community and enable local people to access the wealth of opportunities Westminster has to offer, as well as to support the council to engage better with local residents.  By October 2016, more than 650 people had given almost 5000 hours of their time, volunteering for a range of local groups and services.

Cabinet Member for Sports and Leisure, Councillor David Harvey said:

Westminster has some of the best leisure facilities in London and we actively encourage our residents to lead healthy lifestyles. It’s great that Everyone Active Leisure Centres are now part of the Time Credits network, offering fantastic opportunities to volunteers earning Time Credits. We are tremendously grateful to our community volunteers across the borough and we hope they enjoy spending their hard-earned credits, either by sweating it out in the gym or more leisurely in the steam room.
