What We Do

Why We Do It

We work across the UK and beyond to provide inclusive and impactful cricket programmes, empowering young people with disabilities and from disadvantaged communities to develop the knowledge, skills, capabilities and confidence required to overcome the challenges of inequality, raise their aspirations and reach their potential.

We need to do this because:

  • Just one in four (25%) disabled people had taken part in an organised activity session in the last year, compared to 36% of non-disabled people.
  • Children and young people from the least affluent families remain the least active. Those from disadvantaged communities are far less likely to engage in regular activity.
  • Physical activity aided in fighting mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.
  • Girls aged 11-16 are more likely to have experienced a decline in mental health (43%) than boys the same age (34%).
  • Disabled young people aged 16-18 are at least twice as likely as their non-disabled peers to not be in education, employment or training.
  • In 2021, 5% of 11–16 year olds and 13% of 17–22 year olds reported feeling lonely often or always.
  • Only 4 in 10 disabled people (42%) agree that sport and physical activity is fair for disabled people.

By creating opportunities, we will have a lasting impact on the lives of young people with a disability and those living in areas with a higher level of poverty, across the UK and beyond.
