About us
As part of Places for People, we are one of the UK's leading social enterprises, welcoming over 30 million members to around 100 health and wellbeing facilities across the nation annually.

We aim to enlighten our communities about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle in collaboration with local authorities, customers and partners both within our thriving community hubs and out in the wider community.

By understanding the needs of the community we aim to create behavioural changes which improve the physical and mental wellbeing of individuals and social wellbeing of the collective.

Places Leisure (formally DC Leisure) was established in 1991 and steadily grew from 4 facilities in 1994 to over 100 today. It was privately owned until 2012 before being acquired in a ground-breaking move by Places for People; becoming the first leisure provider to join forces with a housing provider.

Key products and services
Our vibrant and attractive spaces encourage communities to play sport, socialise and engage in physical activity. Across the country our centres provide a broad variety of spaces for their communities, including:

• 59 swimming facilities
• 71 top class gyms
• 100+ group workout spaces
• 22 places to play squash
• 51 sports halls
• We even have libraries, banks, GP surgeries and pottery courses operating from our sites!

Our facilities are about more than just health and fitness. By welcoming clubs, charities and societies to exploit the space available they can become the beating heart of the community.

We love nothing more than seeing the impact that our people and facilities have on our communities. From guiding a child through their first strokes in the water to offering a place where goals are established, safe spaces are offered and health in every form is promoted. We offer tangible rewards.

As a social enterprise we are passionate about generating social value for the communities we serve. Using the Moving Communities Social Value Calculator, which assesses the local impact on health, education, subjective wellbeing and crime, Places Leisure generated an estimated £131m of social value in FY 2022-23.
