No child should be without access to the unique power of sport

Current estimates suggest that more than 50% of our population could be obese by 2050.

Access Sport believes every young person should be able to access sport and experience the power it can have enhancing their life prospects.

Lives changed through sport  

Moussa's story 

When Moussa, 13, initially moved to the UK from Ivory Coast he spoke very little English; aware that his "spelling and reading were at a low level", school was often difficult and it proved challenging to engage him.

Now, Moussa is part of our BMX Clever group - a series of sessions that use BMX to teach core values including respect (self & other), focus, cooperation, and confidence. The sessions are specifically designed to develop hard to reach young people like Moussa, and he has responded fantastically!

Attending every week without fail, we have seen a tremendous change in Moussa. A very polite young man, showing respect to his peers and staff alike, he is now a role model for fellow students who struggle with school. Not bad on a bike either, Moussa was a brilliant competitor at the BMX School Games in November, winning the overall sportsmanship award - a true testament to the fantastic progress Moussa has made.
