Registered Charity No: 306054 (England & Wales).
In the UK there are currently over 4.1 million children living in poverty and 800,000 living with a disability. They experience limited opportunities and face inequalities, especially in relation to sport leading to increased risks of loneliness, engagement in crime and poor health.
As one of the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charities, we exist to combat these barriers. We believe all young people, irrespective of background or ability should have the opportunity to enjoy sport and physical activities that directly improve their self-esteem, health, education and future socio-economic potential. Additionally, we aim to provide new pathways of participation. We build community hubs in the most deprived parts of the country to give young people from disadvantaged backgrounds a place to engage in year-round weekly cricket sessions with a focus on developing crucial life skills, creating stronger communities and enabling brighter futures for those taking part. We also provide disabled young people nationally with a chance to realise their potential and enable them to discover what they can do, not what they can’t, and become role models for their peers.
To achieve this work we rely on the generosity of our supporters. Leaving a legacy is one of the most rewarding ways to give as you are safe in the knowledge that we will keep creating ‘sporting chances’ for young people long after you’ve left the field.
