WELCOME to Transforming Culture


Transforming Culture is a specialist leisure consultancy formed in 2009. Since then we have supported many different organisations to adapt to changing and challenging circumstances as the pace of change in delivering leisure services as a largely non-statutory service has increased further. At a time of continuing reduction in public subsidies, we are well placed to support change management, identifying service efficiencies and opportunities to increase income, growing participation and building partnerships with commissioners whilst helping to develop new models of service delivery.


Transforming Culture has delivered a wide range of leisure projects, working with clients to embrace change, developing robust strategies and plans to build organisational resilience, increasing income and growing participation. We work in collaboration with other consultants on larger projects to deliver the results that our clients want. We provide interim senior management roles too.


From our experience working in many different and challenging settings, we believe that by carefully planning the way cultural services and projects are delivered, this can transform outcomes for individuals, groups and local communities. We look forward to working with you!

Sport and physical activity news.

Several new sports funding streams have been launched by Sport England as part of their new strategy to increase participation. Aimed at those who are least active currently, new partnerships will be formed with local and national groups. The latest Active Lives survey suggests that there has been a recent increase in being physically active.

In England, County Sports Partnerships have been rebranded as Active Partnerships to reflect their wider role.


Tourism, Arts, Culture and Heritage news.


There continues to be record tourism figures across the UK as potential future benefits to the economy are highlighted.
