‘The secret is belief. Belief in the youth, belief in myself and belief in my team.’
Founded in 2004, Access Sport CIO enhances the life prospects of disadvantaged children by providing opportunities to experience and enjoy the power of sport.
We do this by building thriving community sports clubs, led by inspirational local volunteers, in the most disadvantaged urban areas. These clubs then provide life changing opportunities for local, vulnerable young people, whilst creating a lasting, locally-owned community resource.
We support clubs across a wide range of sports, often carefully selected to appeal to local young people and overcome physical and environmental limitations, as well as to be inclusive of young disabled people - including BMX, boxing, parkour, hockey, table-tennis, as well as rugby, football, indoor cricket, and many, many more.
