Geographical remit: 


Active Sussex is the brand name of the Sussex County Sports Partnership (CSP) Trust, the only countywide organisation for sport and physical activity recognised by the national body Sport England.

Encompassing the counties of East & West Sussex, as well as the City of Brighton & Hove, Active Sussex works to create a partnership of public, private and voluntary sector organisations who collectively, are committed to increasing participation in sport and physical activity across the county, adding value by working together.

As a partnership we aim to support and complement the outcomes highlighted in the Government Strategy Sporting Future: A New Strategy for An Active Nation (December 2015), where sport will be assessed in its contribution in Sussex to:

  • Physical wellbeing
  • Mental wellbeing
  • Individual development
  • Social/community development
  • Economic development

Working towards this common goal with a range of partners, the trust aims to make an impact on the current inactivity levels within Sussex, which in turn will also help to address the wider government outcomes as set out above. 


Active Sussex’s Board independently oversees, scrutinises and guides the work of the CSP, making decisions where appropriate, and ensuring good governance of the CSP.

The Board also oversees delivery of the emerging 2018-21 Strategic Framework for Sport and Physical Activity for the county. The Active Sussex executive team has the job of coordinating this work. The Strategy will focus primarily on how increased participation in sport and physical activity can enhance the lives of Sussex residents, and as a priority will focus on three priority groups:

  • People living in areas of socio-economic disadvantage and/or on low income
  • Older adults, and those with life-enduring disability
  • Children and young people

The CSP also works to support other relevant networks to improve opportunities, to attract funding/investment for sport, including facilities and to improve coordination, networking and partnership working across the sector in Sussex.
