LEAP Enterprise is a Sport Management Company that utilises the knowledge, skills and experience of leaders to facilitate change, educate youth, empower through opportunity, entertain players and develop people to maximise their potential to positively contribute to wider society.
Set up in 2017 to bring leaders together to empower people within society we use the power of sport to engage, coupled with the benefits of mentoring, performance management and cohesive activity we bring together communities to live healthier lifestyles.
Our core values are to create a Safe, Inclusive, Diverse and Stimulating Environments that focus on key aspects such as enjoyment, instilling confidence and raising aspiration though decisive problem solving and creative critical thinking, to assist the personal development of children, teenagers and young adults to become better decision makers.
We provide opportunities through Sport, Enterprise, Community Cohesion and Inclusion to leave, through many programmes a real lasting legacy on the individuals, organisations and communities with whom we work.
Our mission is to raise the aspirations of young people and facilities within the communities in which we operate, and to give them the opportunity through association with LEAP Enterprise LTD to engage with inclusive community cohesion activities, enterprising activities, sport and physical activities to increase their core skills base, gain qualifications and local employment. We aim to increase the health and well-being of many communities across the North West of England, and in particular of children in primary schools.
As an organisation, we are committed to increasing the skills and capacity of young people in the UK by tackling social exclusion, activating healthy leisure and recreation
whilst reducing crime within disadvantaged neighbourhoods by affording increased opportunities for children, teenagers and young adults to access our community cohesion programmes in sport, music, creative arts, dance, education, media and productions.
We are also dedicated to promote and assist in fundraising for any charitable organisation (that we feel has similar beliefs and values as LEAP Enterprise LTD), for the benefit of communities within the top tier of social and economic deprivation within the United Kingdom and overseas in a bid to increase facilities for sport, recreation or other leisure time occupation of such persons who have need for such facilities by reason of their age, youth, infirmity or disablement, poverty or social and economic circumstances or for the public at large in the interests of social welfare and with the object of improving their condition of life.
