About Us

Active Northumberland was established to help the people in Northumberland make the most out of the diverse culture and leisure on offer in our great county.  We have a board of trustees made up of local representatives from across the county and our mission is to create opportunities in Northumberland that:
  • enrich lives
  • promote wellbeing
  • inspire creativity
  • encourage participation

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.
 
Culture is another vital part of our services. We manage all of the county’s libraries and support the development of creative industries such as arts, heritage and tourism. We also actively arrange and promote events such as festivals and theatre and museum programmes in order to attract visitors and create opportunities for residents.

We work in partnership with many different organisations but we’re always keen to develop new partnerships to help our support network grow. If you want to find out more about our work or have any suggestions for the culture and leisure facilities in Northumberland, please contact us.
