Key Partners

We work with several key partners

Sutton Council

Sutton Council is the local authority based in the London Borough of Sutton. One of 33 Boroughs in London. Sutton is divided into 18 wards, each electing three councillors. The Leader of the Council is Ruth Dombey. 

The Sports Partnership work closely with Sutton Council ensuring their priorities are closely aligned with the strategic objectives of the council outlined in the Sutton Plan. They meet regularly with Public Health – a copy of the annual report can be accessed by clicking on the title on the left. 

We have a newly appointed Mayor, Councillor Trish Fivey who was elected in the first ever virtual annual meeting.

It is particularly good timing that Cllr Fivey has been elected as Mayor during Mental Health Awareness Week 2020, as this year the Mayor has chosen Sutton Mental Health and Home Start as her two charities.

London Sport

London Sport exists to make London the most physically active city in the world.

We are supported by Sport England and the Mayor of London, and work in partnership with London’s Local Authorities and a host of agencies to support less active Londoners to build physical activity habits that support their health, wellbeing and prosperity.

Our strength is working with others and we believe working in partnership with others is the only way we can make real progress in getting Londoners more active.

Our partners are wide-ranging, from community organisations through to local authorities in London and with our local relationship approach across all the 33 London Boroughs, we know we are the experts in physical activity and sport in London. Responsible for initiatives like the ‘This Girl Can’ Campaign and partnered with London Marathon to bring ‘The Daily Mile’ to as many schools as possible.

Youth Sport Trust

The Youth Sport Trust is an independent UK children’s charity dedicated to creating a brighter future for young people through the power of sport and physical activity. 

We want to ensure that every child — regardless of age, gender, background or ability — has the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle and has access to high quality PE and school sport. 

We passionately believe this is crucial to tackling some of the biggest challenges facing today’s generation of children and young people.

Association for Physical Education

The Association for Physical Education (afPE) is the only representative PE Subject Association in the UK.

Our purpose is to promote and maintain high standards and safe practice in all aspects and at all levels of physical education, school sport and physical activity influencing developments at national and local levels that will impact on pupils’ physical health and emotional well-being.

We provide quality assured services and resources, and valuable professional support for our members and the physical education, school sport and physical activity sector.

‘We are not about quick fit solutions, we want a sustainable legacy, so that in another 15 years we do not have inactive young people and a growing obesity profile. Proactive solutions worked across the sector by key stakeholders in true partnership, will ensure children and young people have the knowledge, skills but more importantly the physical health and emotional well-being to achieve the very best that they can. Help us to make it happen!’

At UniPlay we specialise in the design and installation of thermoplastic playground markings for schools. We provide creative, imaginative and fun thermoplastic playground markings aimed to enhance cross-curricular learning. We create play spaces suitable for children of all ages and abilities and aim to increase their confidence while making exercise fun.

All of our thermoplastic graphics are designed and cut ‘in-house’ giving us complete control over the design and quality. We are able to cater for any bespoke requirements you have and assist with putting together customer specific designs.


We are aware of the importance of working with your clients’ time restraints and always aim to carry out the installations with minimal disruption to the client. All of our teams are based from our premises giving us greater control over quality and training and ensuring all of our teams are equipped to install thermoplastic markings to our highest standard.  


We cut all of our graphics by water jet cutting machine which gives us optimum control over the precision of the designs we produce. The last 12 months have seen us make further investment into the business with the acquisition of a UHP water removals machine and zirocco surface driers to enable us to continue to work throughout the wettest and coldest months.
