Active Northumberland is a charitable trust, 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. We manage facilities and services and promote healthy lifestyles. We have a board of trustees that is made up of local representatives from across the county. Our commitment is to improve health and well-being across Northumberland and our vision is to be the best community leisure and wellness provider in the UK.
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 values represent how we want to behave, we think abiding by our values will make Active Northumberland a great place to visit and to work. Our values are:
FUN - Our commitment to fun means we encourage it in everything we do to build confidence and teamwork and to attract and retain great people.
INCLUSION - Our commitment to inclusion means we understand and respect differences, we collaborate as a team, and we break down barriers to enable people who are socially excluded, disadvantaged, isolated and vulnerable to participate and achieve their goals.
TRUST - Our commitment to trust means we are honest and respect the views of others. We can accomplish more together as a team, and we always do our best to provide an exceptional service
