We do this using our proven and recognised Sport for Change model and its range of person-centred, youth-led programmes that provide positive experiences, inspiring role models, engaging social education, training, and youth volunteering opportunities. As a result, we seek to encourage a positive change in young people’s attitudes and behaviour that enables them to recognise and fulfil their potential, and to make a valuable contribution to their peers and their community.

We are proud to have a culture which is inclusive and collaborative, where our people are valued and supported to lead and develop ground-breaking initiatives with young people and communities at the heart.
