Welcome to GLL

A charitable social enterprise for all the community

GLL makes community services and spaces better for everyone. And it’s about more than just money. Our people invest time, energy and effort into helping and improving communities through the services we offer - and with great results.

Our success means we’re proud to be the first leisure operator in the UK to be awarded the prestigious Social Enterprise Mark (which we held from 2010 until 2013) and the Big Society Award.
