Access Sport uses the power of community sport to improve inclusion, wellbeing and employability outcomes for disadvantaged, at-risk and disabled young people. We focus our work in deprived urban communities in London, Bristol, Manchester and Oxford, reaching nearly 10,000 young people each year.
Our unique way of working empowers local volunteers to build thriving sports clubs that are embedded and sustainable within their communities. With Access Sport’s support our partner clubs become better equipped to reach out, engage and develop local young people in a safe, inclusive and welcoming setting.
We have extensive experience of working across a wide range of sports, whether traditional such as football or cricket, or less traditional such as BMX, indoor climbing or skate-boarding. At present, in partnership with the respective sports’ governing bodies, we are growing national youth-led movements in BMX cycling and disability hockey, sports which have proven to be highly successful in enhancing the life prospects of disadvantaged and disabled young people.
Access Sport has won national awards including the Sports Business Awards Best Charity Community CSR 2017 and the BT Sports Industry Awards Best Community Project 2015.
