Dunk will give 500 children across London the chance to play inclusive basketball

We are looking for a partner to help us grow our disability basketball programme – Dunk. A project that will give 500 children across London the chance to play inclusive basketball.

By coming on board, you will be supporting young people across the capital to access the life-changing benefits of community basketball. 

Through Dunk, we will train, equip and support new and existing community clubs to improve their inclusivity, including attracting more disabled, female and ethnically diverse young people.

Clubs will have access to the ongoing guidance needed to set up and sustain thriving inclusive sessions. With your support, we can change the face of basketball in London.

We know from Sport England’s Active Lives data that basketball consistently attracts people from the least affluent backgrounds. The sport therefore has huge untapped potential to positively impact the lives of underserved young people.

However, clubs are critically underfunded and there are decaying basketball courts across the capital. Through Dunk, we will work intensely with London-based clubs, ensuring they have the funding and training to establish sustainable sessions that serve some of the most disadvantaged young people in their local communities. 

Tess Cinamon Duffield, Head of Programme, said:

“The London basketball scene is primed and ready to impact young people’s lives. Through Dunk, we can empower local communities to use basketball to create tangible positive change. We are so excited to work with a corporate partner to get this project off the ground and I look forward to achieving some of our ambitious targets.”

With your support, we will be best positioned to work with community basketball clubs and provide long-term support. Your backing will allow us to use basketball to transform communities across London.
