Welcome to the Active Braintree District Network, one of 14 District Networks set up across Essex to lead, develop and co-ordinate sport and physical activity in conjunction with Active Essex. The Network is an un-constituted body made up of representatives from across the district who have an interest in sport and physical activity and in particular increasing levels of activity for both those who are active (but not yet hit the target of 150 mins per week) and those who are currently inactive.

The Network is represented on the Braintree Health and Well Being Panel and in 2018 established the Active Braintree Foundation whose aim is also to promote sport and physical activity for the benefit of health.

The Foundation is now the responsibly body for the funding drawn down from Active Essex and will seek to secure additional funding from appropriate sources. In 2019 the Foundation will be funding/supporting activities including fun runs, club forums, walking and walking sports, Women Like Us events and the annual sports awards as well as offering small grants to those looking to decrease inactivity.
