About Us

Our Values: Passionate, Inclusive, Dedicated, Inspiring, Connected

Passionate: We are passionate about the power of physical activity and sport to build communities and a sense of belonging to improve the quality of people's lives in Somerset.

Inclusive: We value differences, learn from experiences and welcome varying perspectives to deliver safe, meaningful and real opportunities in physical activity and sport for the people of Somerset.

Dedicated: We are dedicated to connecting Somerset residents to opportunities to be active in ways that feel good to them, offering the best chance to sustain their involvement in and enjoyment of moving.

Inspiring: We lead from within, uplifting communities and individuals to integrate physical activity into their work as an essential part of everyday life.

Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership (SASP) is dedicated to increasing the health and happiness of residents in Somerset through physical activity and sport.

SASP is a charitable trust and a member of the nation-wide network of 43 Active Partnership's, sharing a mission of transforming lives through sport and physical activity. Each Active Partnership is independent, governed by a Board of Trustees and funded through Sport England, and grant giving bodies, companies and individuals whom share their mission.

Our vision is to...

"Achieve healthier and happier communities in Somerset through physical activity and sport"

We inspire and enable positive life choices through sport and physical activity and we do this by:

  • Providing accessible opportunities locally for all ages and abilities, prioritising those who are least active.
  • Addressing inequalities and removing barriers to physical activity and sport.
  • Supporting clubs, communities, schools and the workforce to embrace physical activity.
  • Bringing together organisations and partners to create positive change to enable active lives for all.
