Welcome to Everyone Active |


Everyone Active is now here at your local Barking & Dagenham sport and leisure centres

Who is Everyone Active?

Everyone Active is delighted to be managing sports and leisure centres on behalf of Barking & Dagenham Council from 1st September 2017.

Everyone Active is the trading name for Sports and Leisure Management (SLM), which has more than 30 years’ experience in managing local authority contracts. We currently manage over 150 leisure facilities nationwide. Our goal is to encourage everyone to be more active, doing at least 30 minutes of activity five times per week, at home, during work or in one of our centres.

Everyone Active prides itself on being a community-focused company, with a passion for improving the health and well-being of our nation.

We ensure all of the centres we manage provide the highest standard of facilities available, which are designed to appeal to everyone. Our centre colleagues all share the same passion for being active and are guaranteed to offer the most professional and expert advice for members.

We’re looking forward to working together to make improvements to the buildings and equipment and offering exciting new classes and activities which will make getting active even easier.

Improved facilities coming soon…

Everyone Active in partnership with the council plan to invest £2.15 million bringing you an extended gym area and a brand new 50m pool at Becontree Heath Leisure Centre.

There has never been a more exciting time to be active in Barking and Dagenham!
