Sports & Physical Activities Projects

Our students run a range of outreach projects based around the benefits of sports and physical activity for mind, body and soul!

Below are some examples of our sport and physical activity projects - for more information on wider sport volunteering opportunities and development pathways visit Team Durham Volunteering.

Participation Football

**New and exciting project for 2019/20**

Participation Football is a project in which you can choose to attend one or more of 4 different football sessions with different members of the community! Join us and Team Durham staff in running and participating in regular friendly football games for local adults with complex needs. The goal of these sessions is to support engagement, integration and to improve physical and mental health!

All football sessions are at Maiden Castle and see our programme below for more details!

Community Wellness
This project provides gym-based and otudoor multi-sport sessions engaging community members (from a variety of complex needs backgrounds) in varying levels of physical activity. Volunteers will assist with planning and delivering these sessions. This project has a newly recruited Project Leader for 2020/21, and will be recruiting volunteers in October 2020 - so watch this space! If you'd like any more information, please contact Sophie at
Holiday Camps

The holiday camps are a great opportunity for a project leader to organise activities and volunteers for a range of children over the school holidays. The camps will feature a range of activities including craft activities and games. This project is ideal for anyone looking for extra experience working with children in a fun and lively environment.
