our story

Few know the story of how our organisation came to exist. What we do know is that its insertion into the world was in 2003 as a single person entity and it has evolved ever since into the shape and structure we know it to be today.

our history

Legend has it that we were foundered by a ‘creative believer’ who wanted to do things differently to get the children not accessing physical activity opportunities active through fun and inclusive activities. Joined soon after by a ‘focused completer’ who recognised bigger scale potential in the business. Together they had a vision and formed a successful partnership to charge on to achieve it.

Today the company is thriving with three directors, 11 managers and a business support team keeping things running. Add in a team of 60 plus tutors, instructors, group leaders and delivery support staff we have the people we need to ensure our customers access over 50 different courses, projects and activities.

Our Customers, Community & Stakeholders

Without the people and organisations that we call customers and have the pleasure to provide services to be could not do what we love doing. We have the pleasure to work with a wide range of fantastic families, amazing schools, awesome community groups and outstanding companies providing them with a wide range of outcomes that they require and/or desire.

While over time we have expanded to be able to operate in and support many geographic communities, we began life and continue to be anchored within Bedfordshire. As part to our commitment to the community in which we began life we have become sponsorship partners with a number of local youth sports clubs and local charities where we have supported their events and donated funds. We have been delighted to have these relationships with these wonderful organisations and the work they do within the community.

As an organisation we are grateful for and appreciate of a wonderful network of stakeholders. At SSG we value partnership relationships as incredibly important and we are committed to working hard to maintain these links as ultimately these meaningful professional friendships mutually benefit all involved.
