About Us

Following extensive consultation in 2006 the London Borough of Redbridge agreed to transfer Fullwell Cross Leisure Centre, Ilford Pools, Cricklefields Athletic Ground and Ashton Playing Fields to a charitable leisure trust. The new company began operating in April 2007 under the name Vision - Redbridge Culture & Leisure. Since the enforced closure of Ilford Pools in September 2008, Fairlop Waters, Redbridge Cycling Centre and Wanstead Leisure Centre have been successfully transferred to Vision RC&L and we also deliver an Exercise on Referral Scheme in partnership with the Redbridge Primary Care Trust.


As a charitable company we are a non-profit organisation, meaning any surplus made will be reinvested, for your benefit, to improve the quality of facilities and services offered to you. As a new social enterprise Vision is committed to working in partnership with the Council to deliver a range of services. Although we are a new organisation, independent from the London Borough of Redbridge, we will utilise its experience and success to deliver high quality services and facilities.


You'll see that Vision is a customer focused organisation that will deliver sustainable leisure and cultural activities. We will play a vital role in improving the quality of life for those living, working, and visiting Redbridge. We're confident that, over time, you will notice improvements in our operations and enjoy using Vision facilities and services.
