Active Sussex is the brand name of The Sussex County Sports Partnership Trust (SCSPT) and is one of 43 Active Partnerships across England. We work collaboratively with a range of partners to create the conditions for an active nation and use the power of sport and physical activity to transform lives at a local level.

We aim to address inequality and empower everyone to move more in a way that works for them, and our goal is that everyone across Sussex can access the health and wellbeing benefits of being active.

Active Sussex has a small but inspiring team that needs a new recruit to take on the challenges and rewards of helping the Trust work towards reducing inequalities through access to physical activity opportunities.
