In the city of Birmingham, an estimated 50,000 young people live in the top 5% most deprived areas nationally. Sport
4 Life is the award-winning charity that changes the lives of these disadvantaged children and young people through the power of sport.
We work with 8-16 year olds who have struggled at school, endured difficult home lives, or developed behavioural issues, and with 16-25 year olds who have experienced long-term unemployment or been involved in the criminal justice system. Yet despite these challenging backgrounds, Sport 4 Life believes every child and young person has the ability to make a positive change in their lives and to be a success story.
We provide a helping hand on this journey through our sports-themed educational programmes. These programmes supports young people to achieve something tangible - to build their confidence, develop their life skills, improve their health, transform their behaviour, gain a qualification, or find a job - and ultimately to reach their true potential for the future.
