Rise North East
Black capital letter R on white background

Rise North East (Rise) is a charity working across Northumberland and Tyne & Wear with the primary purpose of improving the quality of life of communities that need it the most through the use of physical activity. We are one of a network of active partnerships across England who provide systems leadership and operational support to partners and stakeholders to support them to use physical activity, sport and movement in their work in order to achieve a plethora of outcomes, including physical and mental wellbeing, educational attainment and community cohesion. Much of this work is connected to tackling the stubborn, and growing, health, economic and social inequalities that we see in our region. Active Partnerships such as Rise create the conditions for success, participating in, and encouraging, collaboration and co-production, brokering relationships and sharing insight of people and place.

On the eve of the publication of our new 10-year strategy, Rise Together, we are seeking to recruit three additional members to our board of trustees to enable us to maintain a Board with specific skills and who are as diverse as the people we are trying to support. In this cycle of recruitment, we are particularly looking for people with skills in the areas of HR, Commercial/Entrepreneurial/Finance, and Education. If the role and person specification resonate with you, we encourage you to apply.
