SIV is part of the Sheffield City Trust (SCT), a not-for-profit, charitable organisation focussed on improving the health and wellbeing of the people of Sheffield. We are here to inspire people to be active, enjoy sociable activities with friends and to deliver a lasting legacy of a number of venues across Sheffield.
As one of the largest sport, leisure and entertainment groups in the UK, we welcome over 5m visitors each year across our sports, leisure and entertainment venues. Our portfolio of unique venues include Ponds Forge and the English Institute of Sport Sheffield, used by current and future Olympians, through to local leisure centres at the heart of the community. As well as sports venues, we operate 5 golf courses and a range of entertainment venues from the historic Sheffield City Hall to the Sheffield Arena.
With such a breadth of unique venues, we host around 1,500 exciting events each year for organisations big and small, contributing over £20 million to the local economy; as well as bringing some of the biggest performers to the city.
We are very proud of our role in supporting every individuals’ achievements, with our expert staff team helping 20,000 children develop their skills in a range of sports and our Fitness Unlimited team helping around 18,000 Sheffielders reach their fitness goals.
