“It’s amazing to see how the scheme has expanded since its introduction in 2016. We’re proud to have helped many athletes reach the elite level of their sports and we look forward to showcasing our current athletes’ achievements on November 7.

“In addition to aiding the development of many athletes, we’re proud to have seen our scheme inspire the younger generation through community-led events and the opportunity of invaluable mentoring from Olympians and Paralympians.

“As a leisure provider working in partnership with more than 65 local authorities, we feel it is important to cater for all sections of the community, and we hope to continue making a real difference to our athletes’ success.”

Key customers
Our key customers are local authorities including district, borough, city and county councils.
Plans for the next 12 months
We will be working closely with our local authority clients and other partners to give confidence to our customers that they can safely return to our leisure facilities following the pandemic.

We will be working hard to re-establish the activity plans, coaching courses and tuition programmes which have been stalled by the pandemic, and we will focus closely on the commercial performance of the business to ensure we return to a sustainable financial model before the end of the year.
Testimonial
“To successfully deliver on their contract bid, clear and robust mobilisation plans were developed and presented that gave us as a council, assurance that the contract was in safe hands. SLM was proactive throughout this stage and continues to be forward-thinking and progressive in its approach with us as its client.”
– Steve Hughes, project manager, Somerset West & Taunton Council
