About Us

Your Active Partnership

Welcome to Tees Valley Sport

Our vision is that communities across Tees Valley are happy, healthy and resilient, with positive life memories.

Our mission is to redefine what it means to be active through collaboration with our partners and communities. To achieve a shared ambition and positively impact the health and wellbeing of people across the Tees Valley.

Tees Valley Sport is one of 43 Active Partnerships in England. We work with partners across the Tees Valley which includes the local authority areas of Redcar & Cleveland, Stockton on Tees, Middlesbrough, Darlington and Hartlepool. Active Partnerships are tasked with rolling out the local delivery of Sport England initiatives and, in some cases, the dissemination of Sport England Funding.

Our Challenge

Collectively the people of the Tees Valley are amongst the least active in the country with 31.3% of the population being sedentary and less than 50% of the adult population undertaking the minimum levels of physical activity recommended to promote good health. By being inactive the people of the Tees Valley are missing out on the social, mental, economic and physical health benefits of physical activity. This is why we will Inspire the Tees Valley to be more active.

Our priorities

Tees Valley Sport is a relatively small organisation tackling some really big issues. We need to focus our efforts in areas we think we can have the greatest impact. In working with national and local partners, we have selected seven priorities to concentrate on. Not everything we do will fall into these priorities, but it will represent the majority of our efforts as an active partnership.

  • Recover and redefine
  • Brilliant communities
  • Great life to longer years
  • Maximising the power of our health partners
  • Positive mental health
  • Fantastic experiences for children and young people
  • Places to move and be active
