Start Your Own Group

Start your own Fitmums & Friends group

We are happy to chat to anyone who might be interested in setting up a new Fitmums & Friends club. The existing network of community clubs is having an enormous positive impact on improving peopleā€™s lives for the better so we are keen to chat to anyone who shares this enthusiasm.

Setting up a new Fitmums & Friends group is not a business or franchise opportunity. It is a completely voluntary role. It involves finding a team of at least six volunteers willing to support the set-up, as well as securing initial funding. There are often many community funding pots which will help with this and we can also offer support.

Clubs are created so that they can be financially-viable and self-sustaining. During the first 12 months, funds are managed by the central charity but once clubs have been operational for a year they are supported to become constituted clubs in their own right ā€“ therefore managing their own finances. All clubs must however operate under the umbrella of the wider charity in terms of policies and processes.

All clubs are supported by a central team within the charity; and the existing club coordinators become a great source of advice and encouragement too.

You do not need any experience of running or co-ordinating a community group ā€“ we seek enthusiastic individuals with fabulous communication skills and a real passion to want to make a difference for the people in their communities.

If you would like to contact us for any reason, please use our contact form to get in touch.
