Sport4Life - Changing Lives Through The Power of Sport
Home About us What we do Impact News Fundraise for us Donate Contact us

In the city of Birmingham, an estimated 50,000 children and 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 support children and 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.
