We are different because...

  • We are a charitable social enterprise
  • We don’t have private share holders
  • We’re active in areas where leisure and library services are needed the most
  • We manage over 400 facilities, including public sport and leisure centres, libraries and children’s centres in partnership with local councils, public agencies and sporting organisations. This makes us the largest UK-based charitable social enterprise

A Charitable social enterprise combines commercial and social goals but with an emphasis on the latter. Profits are re-invested in our communities or company


Our Values

Better Service. Inclusive                       

Unlike most other brands, we are for everyone. Our community service and spaces provide the solution to social challenge, by benefitting the whole community, no matter their background. Because everyone deserves a place to belong.

Better People. Empowering                 

Our people are who make us what we are. We are owned solely by our colleagues, where everyone has the right to stand for and elect our board. Our people are from the communities we serve and they believe in our social ethos.  We empower them throughout their career with us through our governance and ongoing learning and development.

Better Communities. Giving back                    

For every £1 spent in our facilities, £2 is generated in social value which benefits our community and everyone in it. So, when people buy from Better, they are directly giving back to their own communities

Better Business. Purpose over profits  

We put purpose over profits. That’s why we reinvest every penny back into the business to support our social purpose, help develop our staff and make our services and spaces better for everyone.
