Our 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.

Our Active Workplace programme is supporting local businesses to increase the levels of physical activity within their workforce. Our support is free of charge to employers and our service can be tailored to suit your needs. 

The Active Workplace programme provides a host of exciting different ways to encourage your staff to lead a more active lifestyle. For more information please download the guide, or click on the links below.

Active Workplace Programme Guide

 
 
 
 
 
 

Active Workplace boasts a huge variety of over 30 exciting activities, including box fitness, pilates, archery and golf. This array of sporting options enables us to create a tailored sport and physical activity programme that can offer something for every employee, regardless of age, fitness level or ability. We typically deliver six week blocks of beginners’ sessions to allow individuals to get a good taste of a new sport or activity but we can also deliver longer and shorter programmes. Once engaged, we will work with your employees to arrange follow on courses to allow them to continue participating and maintain an active lifestyle.

Our Active Workplace Games provide exciting and rewarding opportunities for businesses across Tyne & Wear to compete against one another in a variety of fun sporting challenges. The events provide people of all ages and abilities with the opportunity to participate in a range of sports and physical activities whilst socialising with their colleagues and competing to win the title of Tyne & Wear Active Workplace Games Champions. Organisations taking part also use them as a means for team building and increasing staff engagement, which in turn can reduce absenteeism, boost staff morale and increase productivity.

Take a look at our video above to get a feel for the atmosphere and success of the games.
