Active Sunderland - about us

Active Sunderland's aim is to develop an 'All together an Active Sunderland - a city where everyone is as active as they can be'.

We are passionate about getting more people active and supporting our communities. To achieve this, we work in partnership with a wide range of partners to improve access and pathways into sport and physical activity. Within this context our aims are to:

  • impact on the greatest number of people (children and adults)
  • enable children and young people to have the best start in life and form good habits
  • support families and communities that are benefiting least from being active
  • provide access to all our infrastructure which includes, green and blue space, as well as sport and leisure facilities.

We also deliver a number of sport festivals, events and a weekly walking programme to inspire people to become more active.  It is our hope that we can improve people's understanding of the benefits of being active, which include improved physical and mental wellbeing.
