Mowden Park Community Scheme

About Us

“To create a lasting legacy for sport, education, health and social cohesion across Darlington and the wider North East.”

Welcome to the Mowden Park Community Foundation.

Mowden Park’s Community/Foundation aim is to create a lasting legacy for sport, education, health and social cohesion across Darlington and the wider North East. The Foundation utilises the Mowden brand, its members, volunteers, players and professional staff to engage a wide range of people, empowering them to live an active, healthy and rewarding lifestyle through the medium of sport, the arena facilities and its events. The Foundation is the source of community based projects and initiatives delivered through the club and supported by local and national partners.

Since the inception of the Mowden Park Community Programme over 5 years ago, we have grown significantly. Working in over 50+ schools and colleges across the North East providing coaching to over 50,000 children and young people.
