Sutton Ramp Events

We use urban sports to connect with marginalised young people at risk of exclusion, anti social behaviour and offending in order to build their self esteem, equip them to be part of their community.

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    We are motivated by our Christian faith to inspire young people to become contributing and valued members of society through the practice and/or volunteering with extreme sports programmes.

    We use skateboarding and other extreme sports as a means to engage with young people in an effort to reduce crime, gang related knife crime and the fear of crime around areas of social deprivation. We engage young people and their families at key events throughout the year and operate in schools and colleges through our Transition and Impact projects.

    We partner with other organisations to build community cohesion by breaking down barriers and creating space for dialogue across ages, races, faith groups and sub-cultures.

    We work with vulnerable children, youth and young people in South London.
