Improving wellbeing through the power of physical activity

Let’s shift together!

Introducing Shift

At Shift (formerly known as Community Sports Trust) we do things a little differently. We truly believe in the power of physical activity to transform the lives of the people around us. But we know behaviour change takes time and patience and we can only make a real difference when we all go on the journey together.

More about Shift

We are real people working with real people

We’re a bunch of down to earth people who thrive on enabling others to fulfil their potential. We’re passionate about the people and the communities we work in, so you'll often spot us out and about enjoying a coffee and natter to build relationships. Those little moments of intimacy build trust and break down barriers. We help bring people together, enabling them to live happier and healthier lives.

That's why we've created Mindshift - a learning and development programme to give you the tools you need to take on the world.

The rise of institutional entrepreneurship

With rising demands on public services and diminishing resources to cover the costs, we desperately need to create a culture of innovation, experimentation, risk taking, vision and passion.
