Welcome to GLL

A Charitable Social Enterprise

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. Our friends at Social Enterprise UK have made a great film about why this is so important…
