The Northumbria Sport Foundation (reg. 1111675) is Northumbria Sport’s partner charity. It harnesses the enterprise and leadership skills of Northumbria University students, by enabling them to raise funds and deliver sport programmes for members of the community. The Foundation enables students and the community to enhance their potential through sport in line with Northumbria Sport’s themes of ‘Engage, Inspire and Achieve’.
The Northumbria Sport Foundation harnesses sport’s power to deliver positive change, with the direct support of Northumbria University students. It is committed to improving the personal development, health and wellbeing of disadvantaged people across the North East in order to make a lasting difference to their lives. It also benefits students by giving them an opportunity to engage in fundraising activities and work within their local community.
Whilst the Foundation is linked to Northumbria University, it is structurally and financially independent, meaning that it is responsible for fundraising thousands of pounds each year to run its life-changing programmes.
