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

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. In partnership with Canterbury, Loughborough and Kingston Universities, our team monitored the impact of our clubs & programmes and found that:

  Of young people say they want to do more activity or sport than before
84%  Of parents/carers report that their child's wellbeing has improved
82%  Of participants say they now know more about being healthy and active
76%  Ride a bike more than they did before
