Sport has an extremely important role to play in the lives of millions of people across the country. It is crucial to the success of a number of national agendas including health and wellness, social inclusion and crime reduction. Universities are now being recognised as a major partner in the support and delivery of these objectives, and are part of a growing professional example of effective and resourceful sports delivery.
The University is committed to being an active civic institution, part of a two way process with the local and wider area. The community and outreach work carried out by University sport Sunderland encompasses this statement, and our involvement with the local area is increasing year on year, we are now part of many new and exciting projects working with partners such as HEFCE, Tyne & Wear Sport, Sport England, SUNEE, and the Local Council.
