The LPFF manages seven playing fields across the capital where 200,000 people a year play football, rugby, cricket and softball improving their physical and mental wellbeing. We believe that playing fields are where sport begins and for the gifted few they are where careers begin.

Founded in 1890 our vision is to create happier, healthier, more cohesive communities. Recent research commissioned by the Foundation shows that the benefits derived from playing sport and being physically active extend well beyond the pitch. For just one of our grounds in Walthamstow the report found that the minimum saving to the public purse was £4.8million over a 12-month period.

As well as increasing sports participation through the provision of facilities for schools and clubs, we extend our reach to disadvantaged groups via a series of life changing projects. For example, the award-winning project Coping Through Football works with the NHS to provide a service with a difference in helping hundreds of people with long term mental health issues to get their lives back on track. Other projects target youngsters at risk of ceasing sporting participation or those for whom opportunities are few and far between. We have also run projects focussed on social inclusion and preventing youngsters from falling prey to the lure of gang activity. These projects aim not just to make an immediate impact but also to shape and inform government and social health policy.

Furthermore, the Foundation also has a strategic protection role which entails compiling the Fields at Risk Register and acting as the first port of call for advice on saving endangered sports pitches across London. We have also written a Charter for Playing Fields in London which provides 12 indisputable calls to action that we hope key stakeholders will unite behind and implement to safeguard the future of London's playing fields.

BaseballSoftballUK (BSUK), founded in 2000, is a national development agency created by and working for the British Baseball and Softball Federations, and receives funding from Sport England to carry out this role. BSUK’s work has been defined by a vision of the sports as “Played in Every Park”, and a central focus has been to increase participation.

Ten years ago, around 10,000 people played the sports in the UK; today the number is over 24,000, with an age range of 7-70. As well as programmes designed to grow participation, particularly among women and girls, members of the LGBT community and in the higher education sector, BSUK’s other areas of focus are coaching and coach development, facility development, bringing the sports to children and young people in and out of schools, supporting the development of clubs and leagues and talent development through an Academy and High Performance Academy structure.

BSUK also provides a range of additional services to the Baseball and Softball Federations, including communications and marketing support, insurance provision, governance and safeguarding. The UK’s first-ever dedicated baseball and softball playing complex was built by BSUK with support from Sport England and the US-based Baseball Tomorrow Fund and opened at Farnham Park, north of Slough, in 2013. It has since become the national centre for the sports, hosting everything from development sessions to league and tournament play, National Championships and international competition.

Richmond Rugby Community Department have partnered with The Atlas Foundation to help raise money for community projects being run by the Club in and around the Richmond Area. The Atlas foundation was formed by ex-England Captain and RFU President Jason Leonard, who lives locally to the Club.

The partnership’s aim is to raise funds for schools rugby delivery at local state schools who have little or no resources for outside coaching support. The Community team are looking to target schools who traditionally have not played rugby and have pupil intake from diverse cultural backgrounds.

In addition to the school projects we are also looking to fund a “Rugby changes lives” programme being run at Her Majesties Prison Feltham, ‘A’ wing. The younger inmates aged between 15 and 18 years of age get an opportunity to take part in a rugby training session once a week for 2 hours. The long term aim of the programme is to offer pathways for these young men on release from prison, with the opportunity to continue to play rugby in their local area. We strongly believe that physical activity in a competitive environment linked with Rugby’s values can offer help to these young men an alternative to a life of crime.

Bobby Kasanga founded Hackney Wick Football Club in 2015; Hackney’s first ever semi-professional football club in nearly a century.

We do this by offering educational workshops, sporting opportunities, mentoring and access to work routes which would actively engage with those already involved in gangs, those on the brink of gang life and those who might not be aware of the threats out there (as a safeguarding tool).

Be it providing free football coaching or helping out at various events our members come along and support. We will offer training, employment and community projects which promote health and well-being as well as community safety.

Established in 2015, AFC Leyton is a fully independent not-for-profit girls only football club operating in East London. AFC Leyton was created with the belief that participation in football is transformative for girls and young women. We are very proud of our club. Unlike nearly all other girls and women’s teams, we are not attached to a male football club. This means that every penny the club receives is reinvested into the girls training, matches and other experiences. There is no club quite like AFC Leyton.

The club operates for girls aged 3 to 17, and training for women aged 18+. We have a committed set of talented coaches, all of whom share the same values, to develop girls and young women as good citizens and team players as well as successful footballers. AFC Leyton is both an FA Charter Standard Club as well as an Arsenal Sister Club. The accreditation is awarded to clubs rigorously adjudged to be well-run and sustainable – and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.

Kekoa believe football should be played without fear and with a confidence that makes playing the beautiful game as enjoyable as possible. Enjoyment is a key factor at Kekoa, as football should be played with a smile and a freedom which brings out the best in players, no matter their ability. Encouraging creativity, skill and inventiveness is our aim.

Confidence is one of, if not the most important thing in football. The difference between a confident and a non-confident player is always very evident, even the most talented football players in the world, look a shadow of themselves when they are lacking in confidence.

The environment we create welcomes mistakes and recognises that mistakes are a part of the game, we do not focus on what a player might be doing wrong, but what they might do different. If a player thinks that they will get into trouble or get shouted at for making a mistake he/she will automatically be playing with fear and ultimately play within themselves.

We are London Youth, a charity on a mission to improve the lives of young people in London, challenging them to become the best they can. Young people need opportunities outside school to have fun with their friends, to learn new skills, to make a positive change in their communities and to shape the city they live in.

Last year, we worked with over 27,000 young people through our sports development, employability, youth action and involvement, arts and outdoor education programmes. Our work gives young people access to opportunities they might not otherwise have had. We do this with, and through, our network of community youth organisations and at our two residential centres.

We look to work with all young people, focusing particularly on those who wouldn’t otherwise have access to the kind of opportunities we offer.

At The Bike Project, we take second-hand bikes, fix them up and donate them to refugees and asylum-seekers. London is bursting with opportunities – but it's also expensive. Especially when you're a refugee trying to navigate the complex asylum process on just £36 a week.

At The Bike Project, we believe that no one should have to choose between eating a square meal and catching the bus. That's why we do bikes. In addition to donating bikes, we run Pedal Power, all-female cycling lessons for refugee women, and our Bike Buddies scheme that matches our refugee cyclists with a buddy in their local area to help them build confidence using their bike.

We rely on donated bikes to do our work, and a number of them are refurbished and sold in our online shop to raise much-needed funds for our work - in this film Louis Theroux buys a bike from us, and donates his old one.

Our three-year RugbyWorks programme exists to help teenagers excluded from mainstream education get into, and stay in, education, employment or training. As part of the curriculum, we work with small groups of young people in Years 10 and 11 at Alternative Provision (AP) schools.

Through a mixture of rugby and classroom sessions, our coaches seek to develop key life skills, such as teamwork, aspiration, communication and leadership, that young people need to thrive. Establishing trust and support is vital to our programme, as is making sure our participants are exposed to a range of work-ready experiences, including employability Days, workshops and CV building.

We’re nurturing young people who aspire to positive, productive futures. In Year 12, we offer one-to-one mentoring support to help teenagers as they move out of the AP environment and back into the mainstream system.

Chance to Shine is a national charity that gives children and young people the opportunity to play, learn and develop through playing cricket. We create opportunities for children to play cricket and through that improve their physical wellbeing; help to develop key life skills like communication and leadership; and improve their social wellbeing.

Our organisation is part of a charity called Community Resources based in Dagenham, that supports volunteers in the community working in various different projects, such as open doors which provides english classes, supports teen mums and a community hub drop in. Also there is a wonderful coffee shop run by volunteers. The project which I run is called Skates Dagenham and it is a roller skating club for teenage girl's between the ages of 13-19. It is funded by London Sport.

Barking and Dagenham has the highest rate of teen pregnancies. Data released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows 27 girls got pregnant for every 1,000 below the age of 18 in 2016 – a decrease of just over 10 per cent compared to 2015’s figures.

One of the issues that has been raised was that there isn't enough youth clubs/activities that are affordable for teenagers to take part in. In fact I couldn't find any especially for girls that was fun. This bothered me and I felt that it wasn't fair that not all teenagers could participate or be a part of a club because of certain barriers, such as costs, travel and also lack of motivation feeling incapable of learning or trying something new. This is when the idea of skates dagenham came about. I had always roller skated and ice skated during my youth and loved it. Why couldn't there be a roller skating club that was accessible and affordable for local teens.

I found out through the charity Community Resources that I could get funding which we did from London Sport. We started running our sessions on the 7th of July 2018. We run our sessions on Sundays from 5:30-6:30 at Kingsley Hall, we charge a £1 a session, provide rollerskates and wrist guards. Its a bit like a roller disco where we skate to music learn new skills and have lots of fun.

We've had over 20 girl's that have participated in our sessions and have a core group of about 10 that come each week. I'm a qualified rollerskating coach and have 2 volunteers that help me run the sessions.

GO Run For Fun is an international campaign, set up to inspire children to be more active through fun short-distance running events. It has been a phenomenal success so far with over 290,000 children having taken part since 2013. Running is simple, and children do it naturally.

It’s fun, good for their confidence and great for their health and development. It’s not expensive, and is the basis for so many other sports. If kids catch the bug early enough they tend to stick with it and this leads to a more active and healthy lifestyle.

Our well organised running events encourage children to prepare themselves for the challenge of completing a 2km fun run, to give it their best on the day and to make their run a memorable achievement.

GO Run For Fun currently takes place in UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, USA, Mexico and Singapore – and we are still growing!
