The Space donates all of its profits to charitable projects that help people to live healthier and happier lives. Every time you make a purchase our communities benefit and you are helping us to achieve our aim in making people live happier and healthier lives. One of our flagship initiatives that aims to improve physical and social interaction for people with long term conditions is the Step Out, Move On Project.
Following its successful launch in 2014 in Keynsham, and the amazing feedback received from participants, we aim to launch the project in other areas of the UK starting with London, Worthing and Slough.
The project is managed by Aquaterra Leisure (registered charity number 306153), an organisation with over 40 years’ experience of working with local communities. The charity has had continued, evidenced success in helping people increase their physical activity levels, lose weight, improve their nutrition, manage their long-term health conditions, change their sedentary lifestyles and improve social interaction and befriending.
Aquaterra Leisure creates opportunities and programmes that give support to people to adopt active lifestyles, to have a sense of purpose and to enable them to avoid social isolation, ultimately helping them change their own lives.
