Welcome back! We’ve made some changes since reopening due to Covid-19 please read this important information


Last Year Tees Active attracted £223,149 of external funding to deliver community projects and health initiatives

Community Projects

Our dedication and commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve is at the centre of our ethos, and we will always act for and on behalf of local people. Furthered by our longstanding partnership with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, we are focused on promoting the many benefits of physical activity and its unique ability to bring about positive change, inspire healthy lifestyles and promote community wellbeing.

We do this by reinvesting profits back into our facilities and services, as well as through external funding to develop and deliver important and sustainable health initiatives. We understand the value of public leisure services and embrace our role as the preventative frontline to our national health service. Whilst health, leisure, social and wellbeing services fight back to tackle many of the nation’s health concerns, we have witnessed the positive impact of the local health intervention schemes that we are proud to deliver alongside many of our key partner organisations. Take a look at some of our case studies below.

Working Together to Drive Positive Change

“In all my years working on voluntary sector projects – 19 years now – Active Minds has been one of the most, if not the most, successful in so many respects…”

Paul Christon – Service Manager, Middlesbrough & Stockton Mind

It’s not about the exercise, though that is good fun, it’s about getting a chance to socialise. I live on my own, so I really look forward to coming along to the sessions.

Join Our Cause

If you have any suggestions, ideas or investment funds that could help us to support many of Stockton’s most vulnerable groups, we would love to hear from you and work alongside you to help build active and healthy communities.
