Andy King is the CEO of Your Trust in Rochdale and Chair of GM Active that consists of a collaboration of twelve operators across Greater Manchester. Before joining Your Trust Andy was the northern Regional Director for GLL after merging his previous Trust, Carlisle Leisure Ltd into GLL. He has also been a Director with Serco Leisure and worked in the private sector with Virgin and Fitness First. GM Active was originally formed in response to the devolution of the health budget to the region in 2015 and has really come into its own in a number of ways during the pandemic.
GM Active have responded to the pandemic and what has happened since on their mission to link with health effectively. GM Active have created an Academy to ‘pivot’ to wellness across GM and have created a new ‘Transformational Leadership’ programme that is upskilling managers across GM in how they can play a part locally in working more effectively using collaborative and system leadership to really support those in the community that need it most. In addition they also have an award winning Prehab4Cancer programme that supports people across Greater Manchester newly diagnosed with cancer and as a result is now commissioned by GM Cancer to the tune of £1/2m per annum.
