About Us

The Northumbria Sport Foundation (reg. 1111675) provides sporting opportunities to develop people and communities, focusing upon the North East of England.

The Foundation is Northumbria Sport’s partner charity. It is able to harness the enterprise and leadership skills of Northumbria University students to raise funds and deliver sports programmes for the benefit of the community and the students themselves.

The Foundation will use sport to benefit its key action areas:

  • Youth Development
  • Equality & Inclusion
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Community Development

Whilst the Foundation is linked to Northumbria University, it is structurally and financially independent, meaning that fundraising thousands of pounds each year is required to run its life-changing programmes. To do this we organise fundraising sporting challenges every year, apply for grants to financially support specific programmes, and rely on donations from Northumbria students, staff and alumni, and the local community.

The Northumbria Sport Foundation is signed up, and committed, to both the Sport & Recreation Alliance's Mental Health Charter and to the City of Sanctuary network emphasising our support and commitment to the wellbeing of our community and supporting those in need.
