We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Active Communities was established as a result of the success of Jogging Buddies, which was set up in 2003 to promote walking and jogging in the Paisley area.

We deliver a wide range of programmes as part of contracts, funded initiatives and for partner agencies. We need volunteers to help us out at events, and to promote and support our projects. If you have an interest in sport, health and wellbeing this may be the right project for you to volunteer and help us deliver our services.

Organisation aims and objectives
