The Maidstone Leisure Trust (MLT) was established in April 2007 with a responsibility for the strategic management of Maidstone Leisure Centre and the support and development of a wide variety of sport, health, well-being, fitness and other leisure activities in Maidstone and the surrounding area. The aim of the Trust is to provide, maintain and develop such activities ensuring maximum inclusion of all members of the community.
The Trust works in partnership with Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) to oversee the operation and management of Maidstone Leisure Centre and Mote Adventure Zone in Mote Park (Completion expected January 2019) both of which are run by the Trust’s operating agents, Serco Leisure.
The Board of Trustees currently consists of 6 volunteer members with a wide range of community experience and talents. Each Trustee is dedicated to pursuing the development of the Trust’s Aims and the Joint Objectives agreed with MBC and, for Maidstone Leisure Centre, the Trust’s managing agents, Serco Leisure.
It is recognised that within the Maidstone area there are many clubs, groups and other organisations that are involved in sport and active leisure and who are doing much to promote the health, fitness and well-being of people in the borough. The Trust will work in partnership with such groups and clubs by providing support, information and, where considered appropriate, small financial grants. Information about eligibility criteria and application forms for grants can be found here .
