Empowering young people through cricket
We exist to empower and positively impact the lives of young people facing the challenges of inequalityRead more
We provide innovative, inclusive, and impactful cricket programmes, empowering young people with disabilities and from disadvantaged communities to overcome the challenges of inequality, raise their aspirations and reach their potential.
Why We Do It
Over 1 million young people with disabilities in the UK are currently not accessing sport and all the benefits it brings. We want to reach every single one of them.
We need to do this because:
- 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.
- 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.
- Children and young people from the least affluent families remain the least active.
