REMOVING THE BARRIERS TO MOVING

County Durham Sport is part of a network of 43 Active Partnerships across England funded by Sport England and supported by the Active Partnership Network. We recognise that patterns of physical activity in County Durham are affected by inequality – in health, wealth & access to services.

OUR VISION

A healthy lifestyle is an easy choice for everyone

    OUR MISSION

    Challenging inequalities and changing lives through sport
    and physical activity

    OUR OBJECTIVES

    • AMBITIOUS - Setting our standards high and being an employer of choice with high levels of staff satisfaction.
    • COLLABORATIVE - Working in effective partnerships to challenge barriers to an active lifestyle.
    • CURIOUS - Creating a learning organisation that is responsive to local need and works with local communities.
    • EQUALITY - Promoting equality through high performing staff and an effective Board.
    • PASSIONATE - Sharing our passion for change, our knowledge and skills.

    OUR PRIORITIES

    • CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE - Positive experiences and physical literacy to shape healthy and active futures.
    • BUILDING CAPACITY - Upskilling local communities to develop the local physical activity workforce.
    • COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT - Working with local people to co-produce and co-design projects.
    • HEALTH & WELLBEING - Using sport and physical activity as a means to improve health and wellbeing.
    • ACTIVE TRAVEL - Promoting active travel as healthy and green.
    • ACTIVE ENVIROMENT - Creating an environment where being active is an easy and accessible choice.

    OUR APPROACH

    Taking an evidence based partnership approach, we work to ensure that a healthy lifestyle is an easy choice for everyone. By learning together, we believe we can shift understanding and promote action that raises ambition and reduces inequality. We want to create a happier, healthy county by learning, sharing and collaborating with partners to raise ambitions and inspire change.
