Did you know the average adult will spend over a third of their lifetime at work? This equates to almost 90,000 hours at work over the course of a working life, which begs the question…

When are we supposed to find time to keep fit?

Tyne & Wear Sport’s Active Workplace programme aims to get more people into sport and physical activity by engaging with them at their place of work. We work to encourage people to become more active by providing attractive, affordable and accessible opportunities to try new sports and physical activities, in the hope that they will find one or more that will keep them active for life.

The programme provides a host of exciting opportunities to support local businesses to increase levels of participation amongst their workforce, and encourage staff to lead a more active lifestyle. Read more below about the different services we offer…
