Change the Game 2

Change the Game-Southwick is a Football Foundation and Sport England 5-year funded project, to encourage residents to become more active and involved in their local community.  We are a consortium of Sunderland City Council, Foundation of Light, Everyone Active, Leisure United, Durham FA and RISE NE.

We will work with residents of Southwick to understand what activities and sports you would like to see, working with already established community partners and getting you up and active.  Activities may include walking programmes, beginner paced activity (seated exercise), walking football, soccercise and many others as the project develops.  The activities will support inclusion and positive mental health for the community.


  • Monday 9.30-10.30am Strength, Skills and Drills at Weights and Cakes, The Kings Road SR5 2JD (women and girls)

  • Wednesday 12.30-1.30pm Southwick Seniors Seated Soccercise at Southwick Community Centre (55plus mixed session)

  • Mondays and Fridays 11am-12pm Walking Football at Wearmouth Cricket Club (from 26 June 2023)

  • Friday 5-6pm Bootcamp at Wearmouth Cricket Club for parents/carers of girls attending the Weetabix Wild Cats Session.

Come along and have a chat with us about what new and exciting opportunities there are in Southwick for you and your friends and family to take part in, we would love to hear your ideas about what activity we can put on for you. Hope to see you on Tuesday 27 June anytime between 10.30am-12pm at Austin House Family Centre, Southwick, Sunderland SR5 2JX. If you can't make this date don't worry there will be more advertised.
