Sports Development

The Westway Development Trust offers sport & fitness programmes and activities at Westway Sports Centre, Portobello Green Fitness Club and in partnership with other organisations through community based initiatives.

We aim to provide opportunities for residents of all ages in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to access Trust facilities or other sport and fitness activities.

We also offer a variety of grants for groups and individuals to help with accessing opportunities or to enable an individual’s further development in a sport.

To find out more, contact us on enquiries@westway.org 

Our current projects include:

Health Trainers
