We  are a platform for social change; connecting a diverse community of stakeholders to create sustainable networks that help children and young people from deprived communities to improve their outcomes.

Our  programmes instil self-belief, increase physical activity levels, improve health and mental wellbeing and bring, (often fractured) communities together in new and engaging ways.

We  show children, young people and communities that with the right belief and support they can achieve great things and thrive.

 


How We Do It

We improve the wellbeing of children living in the UK's most deprived areas.

For 8 and 9-year-olds, we kick-start healthy habits strong enough to last a lifetime. And we help 12 to 16-year-olds get on a positive path, develop essential vocational skills and improve their employment prospects.​

Our expertise for engaging children and young people is honed by combining grassroots experience with national best practices.​

Each programme involves three phases;

 

Co-Create

We recruit primary & secondary schools, local sports clubs and volunteers from geographic areas of high deprivation best aligned with our funding partner(s).

Primary Schools - Pre-festival training is delivered for Team Spirit, with options for nutrition and mental wellbeing sessions. 

Secondary Schools -
We also train local teenagers as Young Leaders to deliver festivals, building confidence and employability skills, whilst gaining leadership experience and qualifications.

Festival

An epic day of fun for all, introducing 200 children to a range of locally available sports where the biggest trophy on the day is for Team Spirit.

Primary School -  Children under the direction of SportInspired,  volunteers, young leaders and local sports providers try out 6 new sports aiming to find a sport they love.

Secondary School - Young Leaders use their new leadership skills to motivate and encourage the primary school children.

 

 

Legacy

To convert the inspiration achieved at the festival into ongoing sports participation in the local community.

Primary Schools - We fund and set up  legacy sports clubs with local sports providers and monitor changes in activity levels over 6 months.

Secondary Schools - By instilling purpose & belief in previously disengaged Young Leaders, we help them to be at the heart of building a community that everyone can really feel a part of.
