Active Tameside up for two awards

Active Tameside have been shortlisted for two Pride of Tameside Business Awards this year.

They have been nominated in the 'Tourism & Leisure or Sport Business of the Year' and 'Health & Care Business of the Year' categories. 

The Pride of Tameside Business Awards celebrates the outstanding work of businesses from different sectors and inspirational individuals from across the region.

There are 23 categories in total - including awards for food and drink, health, digital, tourism and e-commerce businesses.

Active Tameside works to transform conventional support services, leisure opportunities and physical activity into a vehicle to address the inactivity in Tameside, through co-production and engagement with neighbourhood and stakeholder partners, to meet the needs of all residents through their life course.

Shaun Higgins, Director of Health & Social Outcomes for Active Tameside, said: “‘We have gone from just being a standard leisure provider, to a health and social care provider that delivers opportunities to Tameside residents, through the life course.”

Active Tameside enjoyed success earlier this year, having won the ‘Inclusion & Disability Award’ at the ukactive Awards.

Last year, the organisation was awarded Pride of Tameside ‘Tourism & Leisure Business of the Year’. 

The winners will be revealed at the awards ceremony, which will take place on Thursday 24 October at Dukinfield Town Hall.
