Active Suffolk is looking to recruit new Board Members. If you have a passion for community engagement, supporting mental and physical health, encouraging social mobility and believe physical activity and sport can have a positive impact on communities and people’s lives, then becoming a Board Member of Active Suffolk is an ideal platform on which you can help to make a difference.

Active Suffolk, the Active Partnership for Suffolk, is a key player in shaping the current and future provision of physical activity and sport across the county. Active Suffolk works directly with key partners across several sectors, including: Health; Local Authorities; Sport; Schools; Further and Higher Education; the Voluntary Sector; and local businesses.

Active Suffolk is committed to tackling inequality and ensuring that our board reflects the broad diversity of the county, recognising the essential dividends that a diversity of thought, enhanced creativity and audience engagement will bring. This diversity of thought and experience allows Active Suffolk to better represent our communities by understanding their needs with regards to participation in health and wellbeing activities and sport. As such, we are keenly looking to build a more representative board and welcome all applications, particularly those from individuals from under-represented ethnic backgrounds, the LGBTQ+ community and disabled people.

All Board Members need to be able to demonstrate leadership and operate at a strategic level in order to ensure the organisation operates efficiently and effectively to achieve its priorities and to ensure long-term sustainability into the future. Prior board experience is not required, and they will keenly look to support and develop new members with the ambition, talent and commitment to enable them in our goals.
