Welcome to GLL

A charitable social enterprise for all the community

GLL exists to make community services and spaces better for everyone and to improve the health and wellbeing of local commnities.

Built on honest and sound business principles, our charitable organisation produces great results - and this is confirmed by our pioneering work to measure and raise social value.

Not only were we the first leisure operator in the UK to be awarded the prestigious Social Enterprise Mark and Big Society Award, we are the current holders of the UK Business Gold Awards 2018 for our social enterprise strategy and our approach to staff development.
