Improving health and wellbeing outcomes in our communities

Creating a sport and leisure provision


Wirral Council

Wirral Council runs its own sport and leisure provision and has an ambition for the service to be self-sufficient by 2020. The provision consists of eight leisure centres, four golf courses, a sailing centre and a sports development team. The service employs about 290 staff and 140 sessional coaches. Alongside the comprehensive sport offer there are seven gyms and over 380 exercise classes each week. Total footfall is just over three million visits each year. Investment is underway to improve the facilities, increase participation, improve the health of local people and generate greater income from the sports facilities.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
