About us

Active Lincolnshire is committed to providing opportunities for everyone in Lincolnshire to be active every day. We work with partners to address inequalities and inactivity, responding to the needs of people and places.

What we do

As advocates for the positive power that physical activity has on everyone’s lives, we work in partnership to improve understanding, influence change, and tackle the challenge of inactivity.

Knowledge Hub

Our Knowledge Hub is the core of our website. Here you’ll find our guidance, advice, insight and support in all areas of physical activity and sport.

    Club & Activity Finder

    One key barrier to becoming more active is a lack of information about what physical activity opportunities there are in the local area. To help tackle this challenge, our Let’s Move Lincolnshire website features a open data enabled Club & Activity Finder, giving users up-to-date information about nearby physical activity sessions, facilities and events. By featuring your activity on the Activity Finder, you can make it easier for more people to access your club, group or session.

    How to get involved

    To include your activity or facility on the Activity Finder, your organisation will need to open up your activity data. This also means your session information can also be shared on other digital platforms and National campaigns, such as Sports England's This Girl Can site.

    Check out our open data guidelines below to find out how to get started.

    Open data

    What is open data?

    Open data is data that is available for anyone to access, use and share. For example, galleries, libraries and museums use open data to make it easy for anyone to access information about paintings, books and artefacts. The travel industry use it to make booking flights and hotels easier.

    In the physical activity sector, this easy-to-access data gives organisations and activity providers the chance to get more people involved with their activity sessions. By publishing open data about your activities, your sessions can be listed on a wide range of third-party apps and websites, making it easier for people to find and book your activities online.

    Using open data also makes sharing and updating information about your activity sessions easier. Instead of updating details in lots of different places, you can streamline the process by uploading information to a single open-data enabled platform.

    OpenActive

    OpenActive is a sector-wide initiative to support sports and physical activity organisations to publish and use open data. OpenActive develops a standard format to publish and use data.

    How can I open up my data?

    For sports clubs, venues or community groups with activity sessions, the easiest way to publish open data is through an OpenActive-enabled platform.

    If you’re already using a booking or leisure-management system, it may already be OpenActive compliant (follow this link to check). If your system isn't currently OpenActive-enabled or you use a bespoke system, OpenActive can help you speak to your provider or support your developers in creating an OpenActive feed on your system. Contact hello@openactive.io

    If you're not already using a booking system (for example, if you only take bookings over the phone), below is a list of some OpenActive-enabled platforms you can use to publish your data.

    OpenActive-enabled platforms

    Open Sessions
    A platform allowing activity providers to post their sessions to a large audience for free. To get started, simply register and start uploading your session details.

    Playwaze
    A free sports technology platform allowing activity providers to manage their activities online, with the ability to scale up for more complex features.

    ClubSpark
    An online venue management tool designed to make it easier to operate your venue. ClubSpark enables the OpenActive feed on a customer-by-customer basis, so you’ll need to get in touch with your account manager to activate it.
