Lauren Whaley

Active Schools Coordinator

Job role: Active Schools Coordinator leading a pilot project around opening school facilities, aiming to ensure a strong and varied offer of sport and physical activity that appeals to young people is available in schools and communities.

Date joined: January 2019

Professional background: I graduated from Leeds Met university with a degree in Sport Development and started to work at Oldham Council as a Sport Development Officer. I am passionate about promoting the benefits of physical activity on individuals health and wellbeing. I have played netball since I was 8 years old and travelled with Oldham Netball club to Australia in 2008! I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their journey.

Fun fact: When I was at University I met Jessica Ennis when she came to train at the track and made sure I got a selfie with her!
