Responding to Covid - 19:

Through our programmes we have continued to support our participants during the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. Over the past year we have supported the distribution of:

7,400  Food packages to vulnerable families across London and Manchester
1,115  Activity packs giving young people and their families the opportunity to remain active

Working with young people in deprived communities and with a strong emphasis on disabled young people, we have seen the significant impact that taking part in sport can have and over the past year this has been needed more than ever. From analysis after receiving the activity packs there were increases in:

Mental wellbeing...

62%  Of children felt an improvement in their mental health
75%  Of families spent more time together
59%  Of parents/guardians felt an improvement in their own mental health

And physical wellbeing...

62%  Of children felt an improvement in their physical health
53%  Of parents/guardians felt an improvement in their physical health
81%  Of children experienced an improvement in their activity levels

Access Sport are helping young people to become healthier, happier and to achieve their potential by providing access to quality sport and development opportunities.
