Formed in 1987, Sheffield City Trust was the first leisure trust in the UK. Created to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Sheffield, we led the way with an unrivalled mix of sport, leisure and entertainment venues to become The Health Wellbeing Charity.
In the last 30 years, we’ve been here to inspire people to be active, to enjoy sociable activities with friends and deliver a lasting legacy for our venues. We are proud to be part of the fabric of our great city.
Our not-for-profit status means all our surplus is reinvested in improving our venues and activities to ensure that we are here for the communities that we serve. Since 1990, we have invested around £50m in improving our facilities and reaching more local communities with our activities.
From afternoon tea-dances in the art-deco surroundings of Sheffield City Hall to swimming in the Olympic-pool at Ponds Forge, our venues welcome over 4 million individuals every year.
Our open-to-all philosophy ensures that our activities and facilities provide for everyone in our communities across the city.
