We are always seeking ways to make sport and physical activity more accessible to everyone, especially those individuals and groups from lower socio-economic backgrounds, as research shows they are more likely to exhibit higher levels of inactivity.

We want everyone to feel the benefits of leading healthy, active lives and are fully committed to utilising the power of sport to transform the lives of disadvantaged young people and build stronger, safer communities within Tyne & Wear.

StreetGames and Sported are two of the UK’s leading ‘sport for development’ charities who aim to transform lives and communities through sport. To learn more about them and their work, please follow the links below:
