Tees Active’s Mission

Tees Active is a leading charitable trust providing sport, leisure and wellbeing services to communities in partnership with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council. They are passionate about the power of physical activity and believe that everyone should have equal opportunities to enjoy the abundance of health benefits associated with leading an active and healthy lifestyle. As a non-profit-distributing social enterprise, they combine the principled ethos of the public sector with the commercial agility of the private sector to provide a supportive, successful and sustainable service for future generations.

Tees Active manages Billingham Forum, Stockton Splash, Thornaby Pavilion, Thornaby Pool, IB Leisure, Tees Barrage International White Water Centre and Air Trail at Tees Barrage on behalf of the local authority, and is committed to providing affordable and easily accessible leisure opportunities to the whole community.
