Active Communities (Scotland) Limited
Active Communities (Scotland) Limited

Charity registered in Scotland SC041275

Active Communities was established as a result of the success of Jogging Buddies, which was set up in 2003 to promote walking and jogging in the Paisley area. In 2010, Jogging Buddies changed its company name to Active Communities to better reflect the range of work undertaken in local communities. The company is now a registered charity. Our office base is in Paisley and we work in Renfrewshire and surrounding local authorities. Our aim is to create happy, healthy and active communities where people enjoy being healthy, physically active and active citizens in their communities. We deliver physical activity, community sport and health and wellbeing classes and programmes. We want to encourage and support you to get involved regardless of your age or ability. Our youngest member is two months and our oldest is 91!

Current vacancies

Chair of the Board of Trustees

‘Daring greatly’ has been our mantra at Active Communities and we have done just that as we draw closer to opening our own community-led, health and wellbeing enterprise hub in Johnstone in early next year.

We are seeking to appoint a new Chairperson to lead and guide us through an exciting and ambitious phase of growth.

We are looking for someone with effective leadership and management skills who understands charity governance and the role of a trustee.

Our values are at the core of Active Communities and we expect our new chairperson to lead with a strong value base and support others to do the same.

There are 6 board of trustees meetings per year, with additional skills and development sessions and regular meetings with the CEO.
