They have details of over 500 clubs from karate to kitesurfing, fencing to fitness classes.

Getting it right for your club

We all want to make sure that all our clubs are well organised, safe and inclusive to all the community. So, if you are going for Club Mark Accreditation, or would just like to make sure you club has all the right policies, paperwork and procedures in place, and would like some help with anything from a Child Protection Policy, to setting up a Bank Account, CASC or task descriptions for your volunteers then you can download everything you'll need to help you from the Active Cumbria Website.
