Established in April 2002 as a not for profit leisure trust Freedom ran four centres on behalf of Wealden District Council. Since then the company has enjoyed considerable growth and operates 2 brands, Freedom Leisure and Freedom Fitness.
Currently freedomleisure operates 34 sites mainly in the South East of England, across Sussex, Surrey and Kent but we are expanding North and West. We are delighted to say we will also be operating in Worcestershire in early 2015.
A recent addition to the company is freedomfitness. We are excited to be taking over the management and operation of the three clubs at Warwick, Milton Keynes and Maidstone.
As a not for profit trust we have no share holders to pay and surplus income is reinvested directly into the centres and clubs to provide an improved leisure service for the communities in which we operate. We work together with our key partners including local authorities, Primary Care Trusts, schools, colleges, charities and other public, private and not-for-profit organisations.
Our board of trustees is independent and voluntary. They are highly experienced with skills drawn from both the public and private sector. We are not owned by anybody, such as employees, shareholders, or private sector organisations.
We are committed to developing locally empowered and locally accountable partnerships. Our objective is to make a positive impact and contribute to local services and facilities.
We are all dedicated to working with our partners to deliver first class services and facilities and to encourage everyone to enjoy and participate regularly in a healthy and active lifestyle and have some fun doing it.
Maintain and improve our position as one of largest not for profit leisure trusts in the South East, operating sports, leisure and entertainment facilities for an expanding range of partners.
Our staff recruitment and retention strategy will guarantee motivated and well trained teams to ensure our customers are the focal point of service delivery. Our people are at the heart of our business. From the top down we expect 100% commitment to providing excellent service to all our customers.
