We exist to fight the impact of deprivation on the lives of young people. Poverty, poor housing and unemployment are common experiences among our target group. We developed our programme in overlooked neighbourhoods close to our gym in inner city Bristol. Thousands of other young people in impoverished neighbourhoods across the UK experience the same issues that young people face in our own community, which gives us the drive to scale our work across the country. These issues include:
- Underperformance at school.
- Poor physical health.
- Poor mental health.
- Challenging family lives.
- Crime and anti-social behaviour.
