What we can do for you
We're a Charitable Social Enterprise owned by our staff and founded on our purpose and values to provide a different, fairer and better way of doing business. Our purpose is to improve the physical, mental and social wellbeing of local communities.

As the UK’s leading provider of both Leisure Centres and Libraries we operate over 400 locations all helping to make a real difference to local communities and local people.

Every penny that GLL makes is reinvested back into the business to support our social purpose.

Key products and services
GLL operates over Leisure, Health, Libraries and Sports and Legacy Development

GLL’s position as sport and leisure’s leading charitable social enterprise is built upon a solid foundation of services we provide to partners, key stakeholders and customers.

GLL helps build active and sustainable communities through partnership working. We work to a social agenda and are committed to providing accessible community facilities for all. We believe in offering value for money.

Our services are wide ranging and offer current and potential partners a range of solutions and options for enhanced service delivery, increased value for money and tangible added value.

We’ve been operating leisure centres since 1993 and it’s probably what we’re best known for.

We are the largest charitable leisure social enterprise in the UK, celebrating 30 years in 2023.

We are the UK’s largest public pools operator with 130 facilities and the UK’s largest provider of school swimming lessons.

We operate the UK’s largest independent athlete support programme – The GLL Sport Foundation – which had helped over 17,000 athletes on their sporting journey since its inception in 2008, resulting in dozens of medals at international competition including Commonwealth Games, Olympics and Paralympics.

We are rooted in local communities, at the heart of health and wellbeing.

We produce impressive amounts of social value – across a range of measures from health to happiness to employment and education.
