Healthier, safer, more successful communities through sport

Our mission is to transform the lives of young people living in low-income, underserved communities through sport and physical activity.

Providing accessible and attractive sport and physical activity offers for young people

We believe that access to sport and its benefits are a right and not a privilege. For young people growing up in low-income, underserved communities, however, opportunities to play sport and be active are all too often either limited or non-existent.

To bridge this opportunity gap, we work closely with our network members and partners to unlock the multiple benefits that physical activity can offer to children and young people living in underserved communities.
