What does your organisation do?
North East Skate and Ride is dedicated to creating and managing recreational facilities, including skateparks, bike parks, action sports facilities and trail networks, with a focus on action sports such as skateboarding, BMX, mountain biking, inline skating and scooter riding. Our mission is to provide safe and accessible spaces for individuals of all ages and abilities to enjoy action sports and community activities.
Who do you help?
The North East Skate and Ride services and facilities are designed to benefit the entire community, including youth, adults, and families. We aim to provide opportunities for physical activity, skill development, and social engagement for residents and visitors in County Durham and the wider North East region.
