Geographical remit: 


Energize was established to promote community participation in healthy recreation for the benefit of the inhabitants of Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin 

Our Mission is to improve lives using the power of physical activity and sport - and we are beginning to measure the impact of our work in terms of physical health, mental health, community engagement, personal development and economic impact.

Energize Services include

  • Advice and guidance on community sport / physical activity - this could range from facility development to accreditation schemes
  • Knowledge and information services – inc. data analysis - in terms of sports and physical activity participation and also details of local sports providers (clubs, coaches etc.)
  • Brokering and facilitating partnerships which could increase / improve provision of sport and physical activity - both in terms of community and school provision
  • Commissioning / grant aiding providers to deliver specific activity - essentially we provide some grant aid to these providers to deliver specific participation outcomes (these could be children, young people and adults – inc. people with disabilities)
  • Training and education services - to sports and physical activity providers (clubs, community groups, schools, coaches, individuals)
  • Award programmes – e.g. County Coach of the Year, Volunteer of the Year etc. in association with media (e.g. Shropshire Star and BBC)
  • Website, e-news and other communication services to promote own and partner sport and physical activity related schemes
  • Development of programmes, funding bids and associated resources and activity which would be available for sport and physical activity providers to engage in, purchase and / or adopt
  • Events and volunteering services to support the promotion and delivery of sport and physical activity programmes


Energize provides advice, support, brokerage services, training and education and occasionally funding to organisations to help them to help their clients, customers, workforce or students enjoy a more active and healthy lifestyle.
