Great Experiences in Great Places for Everyone

We are a Charity, which means we exist for community benefit and any surplus money we make is put back into our services with support from our key partner, Northumberland County Council.

Our Services

Our Services

We manage all leisure facilities on behalf of Northumberland County Council, including fitness centres, community sites and beach facilities. We also provide a large sports development service to deliver activity sessions to children and young people, and to support local sports clubs and community groups.

Active Northumberland is committed to helping people make healthy lifestyle choices, offering expertise and experience. We support the development of all physical activity across the county. Our leisure facilities encourage a physical lifestyle and our GP referral scheme is nationally recognised.
 

Our commitment

Amongst the many benefits we are responsible for providing for our communities, is our commitment to improve health and well-being.

Generally most people are not as active as they should be to maintain good health and a sense of well-being. Modern living means we have to overcome all kinds of barriers in order to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle. Inactivity is sadly becoming a global problem, and the costs of treating preventable health conditions, associated with inactivity, are enormous putting immense pressure on our cherished health and social care services.

There is no doubt people need support to become more active and to lead healthier lifestyles. At Active Northumberland we want to work with our partners and our communities to develop new innovative ways of delivering services, so we can help people to be more active and lead a healthy lifestyle.
Our commitment
Our Transformation Staretegy outlines how we will get there by 2022, we appreciate it will be a challenge, but we are committed to being successful and we've already started. Here's just a few things of what we achieved in the last year:
