Active Tameside’s Everybody Can services shortlisted for ukactive Award

Published: 13th May 2019

Active Tameside’s Everybody Can services have been shortlisted for the Inclusion & Disability Award at the largest ever ukactive Awards. This puts them up among the UK’s top heavyweight operators, innovative start-ups and leading universities. In addition, the Chair of the Board, John Taylor, has been nominated for the prestigious Unsung Hero Award.

The 2019 ukactive Awards span the breadth of the sports and physical activity landscape, with the finalists representing the stars of the public, private and third sectors. The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony at Manchester Central on Thursday 6th June, where Active Tameside are hoping to build on their success of winning Outstanding Organisation of the Year from the 2018 Awards.

Supported ServicesEverybody 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.

Services are delivered to 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.

Awards headline partner and stage one independent evaluator Active IQ’s Managing Director, Jenny Patrickson, said: “It has been a great privilege and pleasure to judge stage one of this year’s ukactive Awards. We have been blown away by the standard of entries and the diversity on display. We can’t wait to celebrate these shining stars with the sector in Manchester.”

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…
