Access Sport: Transforming Lives Through Sport

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.

needed.
We
achieve
this
by

run
local
sports
clubs
with
cash,
expert
advice
and
networking
to
help
create
thriving
clubs
which
get
more
young
people
positively
engaged.
With
central

local
government
budgets
for
sport
and
youth
services
being

our

more
relevant.
Access

is
working
to
provide
a
tangible
legacy
in
The
Olympic
Host
Boroughs
of
East
London
and
in
Bristol
in
communities
where
childhood
obesity
and
poverty
remain
the
highest
in
the
country.
Our
overall
programme
is
to
develop
75
clubs
(50
in
London
and
25
in
Bristol)
by

helping
transform
young
lives
on
the
ground
and
to
have
broader
impact
by
creating
blueprints
for
successful
‘new
model’
clubs
in

urban
areas
