ukactive awardsActive Tameside’s Everybody Can services have been awarded the Inclusion & Disability Award at the largest ever national ukactive Awards. The Awards evening took place on Thursday 6th June at Manchester Central, where the winners of all 23 categories were announced.

Each of the award finalists underwent a rigorous independent assessment process designed to select the best in each category from hundreds of entrants. The winners were then selected by a special jury chaired by Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Chair of ukactive’s Board of Directors. Active Tameside are proud to have won the award, following their 2018 success, when they won ukactive Outstanding Organisation of the Year.

Active Tameside’s Everybody Can services fundamentally change lives, either for individuals or for families, by transforming the conventional leisure and service offer into a vehicle to address the social care time bomb. The high quality, accessible services for people in Tameside provide the opportunity for education, employment, respite, life skills development and independence.

Active Tameside ukactive Awards winnersServices are delivered for young people and adults with a disability or additional needs, removing barriers to enable everyone to access activities. This allows people to reach their potential and improves their health, wellbeing and independence, whilst engaging them in activities within their local community. Service users take part in Active Tameside centre programmes, including adult social care, community disability sports clubs, community outreach support, holiday camps and bespoke membership packages.

ukactive acting CEO, Huw Edwards, said: “Congratulations not just to all of the fantastic award winners, but to every finalist and entrant, all of whom are fantastic examples of the extraordinary work we do as a sector to get more people, more active, more often.”

My family experienced the Hyper Bowling last week. My children absolutely loved it and wouldn’t stop talking about it, it was such great fun & good how any age can win. I was impressed by the price and how clean everywhere was…

The staff! I’d still use Active Hyde’s gym if the facilities were rubbish and the price was high. There is always a cheerful person on hand to provide help and advice, both on site and on the phone.


10/10 great facilities and location. Excellent instructors and friendly staff.


The gym and reception staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, always happy to assist… I would highly recommend the gym to anyone who is looking for a friendly, professionally run gym with a great atmosphere that caters to all ages and abilities.

I am grateful to the staff at Tameside Wellness Centre for understanding my difficulties, especially since they are invisible. But believing and supporting and being kind to me has made me more determined to continue with my passion for life and remaining active as best as I can…
