Tyne & Wear Sport is a charitable company limited by guarantee, incorporated in March 2010. The company was established under a Memorandum of Association which established the objects and powers of the charitable company and is governed by its articles of association.

How does Tyne & Wear Sport work?

Our role is to provide strategic leadership and operational support to those who plan and deliver sport and physical activity in Tyne & Wear. Consequently, our purpose is one of offering guidance, information, insight and expertise to achieve a fundamental and sustained increase in the number of people participating in sport and physical activity. We are particularly focused on helping under-represented groups, who have higher levels of inactivity, to become and remain active and provide support to those who run sport and physical activity.

More detailed information about Tyne & Wear Sport can be found in a range of strategic documents here.

We achieve the above by working with a wide range of local, regional and national partners. You can find out more about who we work with by clicking here.
