With our ‘Everyone Can’ programme, a key part of this mission is to create a sector that is equally and freely accessed by people. Our findings show that the levels of customer service and the welcome provided by fitness and leisure facilities are vital to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of physical activity.”
