Lords Taverners Impact Report 2017 sports cricket charityThere are 4.6m young people in the UK living in poverty or with a disability. Through the continued expansion of our programmes we’re working towards reducing these numbers.

We are creating more opportunities than ever before for young people from deprived areas and those with disabilities to engage in sport and recreation in their local communities.

We measure our impact by the 'sporting chances' we create.

What is a sporting chance?

  • It’s the chance to interact, play and train
  • The chance to compete, win and lose
  • The chance to learn, have fun and make friends

Every time our work directly impacts the life of a young person, we create a new sporting chance for them.

This year we have:

  • Given 8,904 young people with disabilities the chance to play cricket through our disability cricket programmes
  • Seen nearly 1,750 young people engage with our Wicketz programme
  • Recycled over 12,500 items of kit to 21 countries
  • Donated 40 minibuses
  • Installed 33 sensory and play equipment facilities
  • Donated 43 sports wheelchairs
