Cultural Support Groups

The University of Sunderland offers people from a diverse range of ethnic backgrounds including Asylum seekers the opportunity to take part in weekly sport and physical activity.

This offer has been running now for several years, giving participants the chance to take part in such activities they normally are unable to fund themselves. Activities range from multi sport, gym use, football and rocking climbing, giving everyone the chance to try something new and challenge themselves.

We have been working with external support groups such as Young Asian Voices and local church groups to promote a joint approach, utilising student volunteers to aid in the delivery of such sessions.
