Sports and Welfare Association

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service staff and retired members are encouraged to take up all the benefits of our sports and welfare association.

Whether it’s football, fishing, making new friends or simply keeping in touch with the ‘GMFRS family’, membership of the GMFRS Sports and Welfare Association has many benefits to your and your family and all for just £2.00 a month!

The aim of the association is to promote the interests of its members and encourage all forms of sport and athletics both indoor and outdoor, and to support the promotion of any other activities which will further the wellbeing of its members.
