GLL - A Charitable Social Enterprise

Proud of Being Different Since 1993

Social Enterprises are businesses that are changing the world for the better. GLL is immensely proud to have been leisures leading Social Enterprise since 1993.

What Makes GLL Different?

We don’t have shareholders like private companies, or any bonuses to pay out. Instead, we invest any surplus money we make back into our services. So far, we’ve invested millions of pounds into sport and leisure.

We act as a charity and are are here for the good of the communities we operate in.

We believe social values are just as important as financial performance.

We also believe in our people, the staff who make our business work – especially the ones working in our Centres. Many of our senior management team have worked in local government, so we understand what our partners need and the pressures they’re under.

We’re owned by our staff and Society members, who have a non-dividend-paying share in GLL. That means our workforce is empowered, motivated and involved in making important decisions that affect the company. In fact, the majority of our Board are elected by the workforce.

Wherever possible, we work with other social enterprises and buy Fairtrade goods and services.
