Who are Active Fusion?
The 21st century continues to create challenges for children and young people, including mental health and wellbeing problems and a decline in self-esteem and resilience. Physical activity is proven to have a positive impact on these issues, yet children are not achieving the recommended amount of activity per day.
Active Fusion is constantly working to identify new ways to give young people greater opportunity to be more physically active, from working with them directly to teaching others how to make physical activity more accessible.
According to the Nike ‘Designed to Move’ campaign, today’s children will potentially live five years less than their parents due to poor physical health. We’d love it if you worked with us to give those five years back. Watch the video at the bottom of the page to see what those children would do with those extra years.
See how you can get involved with our cause below. To discuss any of these options, please fill in the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Share your experience and expertise
Charities require the expertise that any business does to operate successfully. Could your business support us to reduce operational costs through donating your professional services?
We also welcome experienced trustees who can help us to grow our organisation. Do you feel it’s time to give something back?
Active Fusion’s Chair of Trustees Andrew Singleton has been working with us since 2018.
This is what he had to say about coming on board: “After years of working in the private sector with total focus on profitability, sales and overheads it was time to give something back to the local community. Combining my two main passions of sport and the welfare of children meant Active Fusion was the perfect charity to join. The charity is young, passionate, dynamic and has been incredibly successful in its short life so far.”
If you would like to make an impact on the physical and mental health of young people in Doncaster and South Yorkshire, we’d love to hear from you. Go to our vacancies page to see the job and person specification and to download an application form.
