A new version of our website is coming this week...

We're excited to let you know that we will soon be launching a new version of our website this week to help improve your experience, simplify our content and increase the visibility of local opportunities.

During w/c 21st June we will be moving to a redesigned version of our website. Our www.lrsport.org website will be moving over to www.active-together.org as part of our journey to encourage the people of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland to move more in their own way.

Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS) – soon to be officially known as 'Active Together', want to build a better system for physical activity and sport across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland, to support the wellbeing of our communities.

Our branding will continue to transition over the coming months with the aim that by November 2021 'Active Together' will be fully integrated across our range of digital services, programmes and campaigns that underpin the overall movement. Click here to read more about this.

What's new?

Don't worry, even if you go to our old website address, you'll be redirected to our previous and new content. You'll also still have access to your account to log back in exactly the same. You'll initially notice that our website is branded as 'Active Together', that is because Leicester-Shire & Rutland (LRS) will be changing its name to 'Active Together' over the coming months, starting with our website!

You'll find our new site is easier to use and here are some of the main features:

Design and layout – you will find we've changed the way things are laid out to help you find what you need much faster. We have also improved our design, streamlined menus and made navigation clearer.

Spilt-screen landing page - once you arrive on our new spilt-screen landing page, you will have some options within the burger menu (top right of the website) and the spilt-screen to help you on your journey to view either our…

  • Public Section - Let's Get Moving

Which aims to help the people of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland get moving a little more, in their own way. You'll be able to explore local opportunities, get advice on how to start getting active, whilst still being able to access all our original information and opportunities.

  • Partner Section - Supporting and enabling sport & physical activity

Which aims to help organisations and individuals support more people to be active. Whether you are a school, club/group, a business, or an individual looking for support, opportunities or funding to improve your sport and physical activity offer, this section is for you, our 'Partners'.

We hope the website transition will be as smooth as possible, but please bear with us during this time 😊

If you have any questions or spot anything a little out of place, please contact us. And, as always, we're here to help if you need it.
