In the heart of Barking and Dagenham, the Bobby Moore Sports Hub stands as a beacon of community development.

Delivered by Alliance Leisure through the UK Leisure Framework, operated by Leisure United and outfitted by Safe Space Lockers, this facility not only revitalises the local area, but also sets a precedent with its sustainable design, achieving a BREEAM excellent rating.

Appointed by the Borough of Barking and Dagenham, Alliance Leisure transformed the vision into reality, supported by the Football Foundation, LBBD, Mayor of London and the London Marathon Trust. Greg Walker, business development manager at Alliance Leisure, noted “This fantastic new hub will not only provide a boost to community sport, but will also have a transformative impact on physical and mental wellbeing, bringing people together and strengthening the community.”

Safe Space input
Safe Space Lockers, known for its high-quality changing room solutions, played a critical role, bringing a top-tier changing environment to the hub. “The quality of Safe Space’s products and the company’s attention to detail is exceptional,” said Walker. “We created national league changing rooms with individual compartments – each one with its own hanger and compartment with digital lock – much as you’d see in a Premier League environment and it looked amazing.”

The facility provides opportunities for sports and recreation to local residents and surpluses will be invested into grassroots football and other community initiatives, ensuring sustained benefits for groups including disadvantaged young people, women and girls and disabled people.

Walker captures the essence of the project’s community impact, saying: “It’s about investing back into the local area. The selection of suppliers, such as Safe Space Lockers, proved pivotal. Its commitment to quality and ability to align with the vision has been instrumental, while its attention to detail is exceptional.”

This partnership demonstrates the importance of engaging suppliers who understand the project’s aims and are committed to delivering exceptional results, ensuring the contribution to social and economic vitality.
