Providing free sports activities for disadvantaged young people and vulnerable adults in London
Sport4Health enables London's most disadvantaged individuals and groups to take part in professionally-delivered sport and recreation, to improve their health, reduce isolation and raise their aspirations. We aim to reduce the barriers to participation for vulnerable people so that they can enjoy the health and social benefits of sport on an equal basis to those less disadvantaged.Why the community needs us
We provide free, safe, and fun, badminton, basketball, football and dodgeball sessions for disadvantaged and vulnerable children & young people in London, For most, this is the only organised activity they can attend after school/college, with an average of 40 young people attending every week.Our impact on the community
Sport4Health enables young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to take part in free, high-quality, safe, stimulating and regular sport and exercise. Our weekly activities keep them safe, make them healthy, help them make new friends, and prevent their drift into gangs and anti-social behaviour. They are involved in the running of the project and we offer them opportunities to peer mentor, to volunteer, and to gain coaching qualifications to help their employment prospects.
