Helping community groups survive, to help young people thrive.
Sported is a charity and free membership organisation that has created a network of community sport and youth groups across the UK that help over 500,000 disadvantaged young people onto a path to a better future.
What makes Sported's members so special is that each and every one uses the power of sport to transform the lives of young people and local communities, regularly reaching over 500,000 young people.
Yet the majority are run on shoe string budgets, relying on the kindnewss and hard-work of a handful of dedicated staff and volunteers. We have enabled them to survive and thrive through our regional team, expertise, services and the support of over 300 skilled volunteers. We help them to build their capacity and long-term sustainability so that they can remain there for the young people in their communities long into the future.
