About Us

Kirklees Active Leisure (KAL) is the charitable trust which manages 13 leisure facilities and swimming pools on behalf of Kirklees Council. We are managed by a Board of Trustees who come from a range of backgrounds and bring a mix of skills to the strategic direction of the Trust.
KAL's vision is to help more people, become more active, more often. To do this we aim to provide high quality services and facilities to all our customers. We are dedicated to increasing the number of people taking part in sport, active recreation and wider physical activity through responding to the needs of the local community and providing a dynamic and excellent value for money service.
Importantly every surplus pound is invested into improving the service and facilities we provide. Since KAL was created in 2002, more than £20 million has been reinvested by Kirklees Council and KAL into local leisure centres.
KAL is proud to be a member of Community Leisure UK, which is a members' association that specialises in representing charitable leisure trusts across England, Scotland and Wales. There are two core strands to Community Leisure UK's work:
  1. A nationwide platform enabling members to meet peers and access strategic partners to find best practice solutions.
  2. Using the power of the collective membership to represent, reach, influence and promote the charitable trust model benefits at a national level.
