Southwark Community Sports Team

The Community Sport Team is committed to developing sport and physical activity across Southwark. We work with a range of partners to encourage young people and adults to increase their activity levels and to promote lifelong involvement in sport.

We manage a number of exciting events, lead on grant schemes, support local clubs and offer programmes for special populations and this service is for everyone.

How this is provided:


- Access to database of programmes online.
- Phone
- Email mail outs

How can I access this service?

For a full list of physical activity options within Southwark please visit www.southwark.gov.uk/getactive. This website also contains information on sports facilities and funding opportunities for sports clubs.The service is funded by Southwark Council. However some programmes are funded by external grants so the service is free. 

Confidentiality and Impartiality


This service supports and promotes all organisations achieving Southwark minimum standards and so is impartial.


Useful to know


The team covers a range of other areas including older adults, London Youth Games, club development and facilities. 

Funding may be provided for some training courses for Southwark residents who are coaches or volunteers.
