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. We're delighted to be a member of CIMSPA, the professional development body for the UK’s sport and physical activity sector.

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.
