This is Manchester

Welcome to MCRactive.

We are a not for profit organisation established and overseen by Manchester City Council, responsible for driving sport and physical activity across Manchester, inspiring and encouraging everyone to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle.

We provide the leadership and a common narrative for sport and physical activity in Manchester, working with the whole sport and physical activity sector to activate over 800+ publically accessible sport and leisure facilities that exist across Manchester – not just those owned by the Council.

We will create and lead a unified voice, bringing coherence, simplicity and connectivity to the sport and physical activity landscape, whilst helping to translate and facilitate connections to other sectors and vice versa to support actions against shared priorities.

We will encourage and facilitate genuine collaboration and co-design of services to get people active. We will develop and share insight, help to identify the strengths of organisations and share good practice across the network and help ensure the development of a workforce fit to deliver the strategy.

We will develop the plans which underpin the strategy and broker and facilitate relationships that will deliver it.

We will align to Manchester City Council’s strategic ambitions and goals with the principles of good governance embedded across our organisation.

From 1 December 2018, we will operate in a shadow form with colleagues coming together from Eastlands Trust, the Council and Wythenshawe Forum Trust to work collaboratively and in line with the principles of the new MCRactive until formalisation of MCRactive, and the associated contracting arrangement can be concluded and instructed. This is anticipated for the end of the financial year 2019.

MCRactive is a proud member organisation of GM Active.
