Active Communities Network

Active Communities Network

Active Communities Network is a sport for development charity which uses sport as a pathway into education, training and employment

ACN provides weekly sports, arts and cultural activities, accredited training, personal and social development, regular youth forums, and awareness-raising workshops which tackle relevant community issues with a focus on supporting the Safer Communities agenda.

We’ve developed an exceptionally close partnership with Hampshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner and Hampshire Police. Other strong partnerships include Hampshire Borough Council, Hampshire County Council’s Children Services team and the Tennis Foundation.

Our work with local sports clubs and arts-based organisations has resulted in widespread recognition and positive press coverage.

Currently ACN is working with 15 local schools and colleges to provide ongoing placements, and we’re closely involved with several faculties at the University of Portsmouth

Active Communities Network, Pompey In The Community and Motiv8 have formed a new partnership that offers a range of activities for young people aged 10-18 years who live or are educated in Portsmouth.
