Who are Active Fusion?
This year we celebrated our first year as an independent charity.
Over the past 18 years, we have grown our team from just nine members of staff to more than 20.
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 only 40 per cent of children are achieving the recommended 60 minutes of activity per day.
We are constantly challenging ourselves to identity new ways to improve how we support teachers, parents and young people by putting them at the heart of our work. If you would like to come on board our mission to help young people get active, there are a number of ways you can get involved. To discuss any of these options, please fill in the contact form at the bottom of this page.
Take part in the Active Teams challenge
The Active Teams challenge is a virtual event designed to get your business and employees more involved in Physical Activity.
Chose any activity you enjoy, commit to completing 20, 40 or 60 minutes of that activity for five days per week throughout July and help us out in the process. You can help us by raising money through sponsorships, or you can opt to receive a medal, t-shirt or both upon completion of the challenge, with 30 per cent of the revenue coming straight to us.
Be part of an online virtual community, share your progress and gain motivational tips. At the end of the July, the minutes of activity will be added up.

Nominate us as your Charity of the Year
If you’d like to give something back to the community, nominating us as your charity of year is an ideal way to raise your profile, fundraise and spread awareness of Active Fusion. How you fundraise is up to you, however, soon we’ll be launching a virtual challenge. If you’re stuck for ideas, the challenge will provide you with a target, motivational hints and tips and is a great way to bring your team together through physical activity.
Sponsor a campaign
We are soon to launch a number of campaigns, including our Active Start programme, Essential Life Skills project and a number of other positive movements to help children and young people in Doncaster and South Yorkshire get active. To be the face of a campaign and help us make an impact in the community, sponsor one of our campaigns and let us know how you would like to be involved.
Share your experience and expertise
We welcome experienced trustees who can help us grow our organisation. 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.
