Active Gloucestershire Community Photography Project

Active Gloucestershire is seeking to celebrate and recognise local changemakers through a community photography project.


This project aims to celebrate and recognise individuals who are making-change in their community, sector or workplace. We want to share their stories and showcase the variety of ways and diversity of people who are supporting the health and happiness of local residents through physical activity.


Do you know someone who making a positive impact in your community, sector or workplace? Someone who is passionate and inspiring others to make a change? Someone who doing something different or new? Someone who is taking action in their job or as a volunteer – no matter how big or small – that is helping people benefit from a more active lifestyle?


If so, we would love to hear from you!
