Partner forum

A networking event for physical activity and sport in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.

 

The Leap partner forum is a networking and collaboration event which takes place three times a year.
It brings together partners from across physical activity, sport, health, leisure, community development and other sectors and focuses on topics where physical activity and sport can add value.

Each forum is themed around a challenge or topic that affects Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes residents and where physical activity and sport can have a direct impact.

Bringing together expert speakers and examples of practices from both in and outside of the county its the ideal place to learn, share and collaborate.
