Our Impact

We create a range of opportunities for young people with a disability and those from deprived areas to engage in sport and recreational activities in their local communities. Our programmes support some of the most marginalised and at-risk young people in the UK.


What We Do


The Need

  • Young people with a disability are less than half as likely to take part in sport at least once a week than young people without a disability *
  • 69% of parents with disabled children have difficulty accessing local services for them, and 90% are worried about cuts to the local services that they need **
  • 30% of children (4.1m) in the UK live in poverty, with those from lowest income households more likely to report low levels of physical activity: 47% of children aged 5-15 from the lowest household income group currently have low activity, compared with 35% in the highest ***

We are passionate about helping to create more opportunities for young people to take part in sport and recreation, through the continued expansion of our programmes and further investment in vital facilities and equipment.

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