We are a self-funded charity that is intent on creating a model for the future delivery of sports and recreation.
There are three key elements to ensuring that we succeed in our aim of achieving this vision:
We want to demonstrate that the model we are pursuing is one that can be shared and replicated by other organisations in the UK and beyond. For example, private or local authority property and playing fields that can be successfully managed for a local community, not just schools but also local clubs and other organisations, to ensure that the property is fully utilised by the community, for the community.
STRATEGIC DIRECTION 2022-2027
Our strategic intent is to be recognised as a trusted partner for recreation in and near Bath over the next five years.
Having spent the last five years building foundations and new recreational sites, this new strategic period, which began in the autumn of 2022, will focus on the impact that Bath Recreation has on the community.
Our vision over the next five years is to create a model for the future utilisation of recreational properties. Bath Recreation wants to demonstrate and share a model which enables other organisations to benefit their communities.
Our enduring purpose is Nurturing Positive Lifestyles
To broaden the range of partners that we work with, including local schools, businesses, organisations and charities and reach out to the wider public to communicate the impact of our charitable work.
To secure the future by ensuring that we have a financially stable and diversified funding stream in order to continue to do the good work we do through the Glasshouse Academy and Buds programmes.
To measure the impact each site and each activity has on the community and to investigate opportunities to protect, maintain and develop sites in and near Bath
