Creating Innovative Digital and Real Life Campaigns

Active Connections is a not for profit that creates campaigns that change peoples lives. Helping people through through innovative, digital and creative campaigns. 

Social Media Marketing

Our aim is to help change peoples lives through digital campaigns and programmes. We strive to support the public sector and third sectors to deliver innovative and creative campaigns, both digital and real life. Our passion is creating programmes that people want to be a part of.

We pride ourselves on being one of very few not for profit ‘organisations in this sector. We did not start out in 2011 as a digital content or social media agency, but have grown into a creative organisation working both on digital campaigns and real life projects. We have developed and delivered award winning social change projects using sport and physical activity as a tool. This work continues on a local and national level as we support others through our learning.

Having developed the skills to engage the disengaged, we developed strategies to reach people through innovative and creative campaigns. We have developed the skills to compete in a competitive arena on social media and the wider digital marketing landscape. Using our expertise we now work with clients from the public and third sectors to develop their social media presence and online digital campaigns. Any  profits go into supporting our social change projects, which includes projects such as ActiveDads, GirlForce and Active Start. The focus for our projects is making sure everyone has the opportunity to be active and healthy


Established in 2011 we pride ourselves to have worked with local, regional and national partners including Barnardos, Bristol City Council, NHS Bristol, University of Gloucestershire, StreetGames, Forestry Commission, NHS Gloucestershire, Active Gloucestershire and organisations from the voluntary and private sectors.

Our Social Change projects have won the Community project of the Year at Heart of Gloucestershire awards, nominated for Project of the Year at the StreetGames National awards in 2016, received the award for Engaging Women and Girls award at the StreetGames National Awards in 2018.

Some Firsts

We were not born an agency but we have evolved into one. It has been a process that has allowed us to learn through experience and evaluating the smallest detail. With the experience of working both with clients and beneficiaries daily, we have grown with the knowledge of how to reach the unreachable and engage the unengaged.
