Working together across the Tees Valley

We are working with a number of organisations to support the local sports sector during the Covid 19 pandemic and have developed three working groups.  Please contact any of the individuals listed below if you need support with a specific enquiry.

Digital Engagement and the ‘New Normal’ Working Group

The focus for this group is to understand how we can support community clubs and groups delivering sport and physical activity to engage effectively with their members and target audiences during these different times. This includes digital marketing though also a recognition that many people do not have access to online resources and that different means are needed. As the restrictions are lifted we also recognise that the promotional and other needs will also change and the group is looking at how to plan and develop our readiness for this.
