About us

The Active Wellbeing Society is a community benefit society established to enable people and communities to get active together. We are grounded in the communities where inequalities are at their highest and work with them to develop the autonomy, capacity and resources needed to become happier and healthier.

We also deliver a wide range of free activities, aimed at improving wellbeing at an individual and community level. Coming together to take part in fun, free activities makes you more likely to feel a sense of belonging and community, and makes you more likely to change the world around you for the better.

The Active Wellbeing Society (TAWS) is registered as a Community Benefit Society with the Financial Conduct Authority. Within our rules we have charitable objects. HRMC has formally recognised our charitable status for tax purposes.

This model enables us to work in a way which is collaborative with our communities, providing a one member one vote model to make decisions democratically and ensure that what we offer is always of the time, inclusive and relevant.

Our structure also means that an asset lock is in place. This ensures that our investment and services are maintained and cannot be for private benefit.
