Solidarity Sports

Solidarity Sports was set up to give disadvantaged inner-city children the chance to play sport together because it’s fun, and a great way to learn valuable life skills.

Since 2007 we have worked with many children and families across inner-city London. We play lots of sport together, we’ve developed programmes in healthy eating and in art, and we’ve been on some amazing trips both in this country and abroad. The children who participate in Solidarity Sports belong to one extended family.

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    We are nurturing the wellbeing and confidence of disadvantaged children in inner-city London through:

    healthy eating initiatives
    educational and inspiring group trips
    giving our time and attention to children who are often ignored.

    Above all, we create happy memories.

    Three simple values underpin everything we do at Solidarity Sports:

    We are open-minded
    We accept people as they are.
    We are not judgmental.

    We listen to our children. We heed their thoughts, and then act.

    Since the 2017 Grenfell fire tragedy we have witnessed the power of our key values in providing a safe, caring and supportive environment for our children.
    Having lost some of our children in that tragedy we recognise the absolute value of each and every child that needs our support.

  • Aims

    Solidarity Sports aims to:

    • Making our children more active through Sports. Through providing opportunity to play sports, we will help our children become more active and consequently improve their health.
    • Making our children healthier through teaching them about healthy eating. Through providing healthy food at our clubs and helping them cook from scratch, we can improve their health.
    • Helping our children make friends and gain confidence. Through providing after school and holiday clubs our children can play with other children in a relaxed environment, building their confidence
    • Helping our children gain key skills for life, such as teamwork. Through playing sports together and team games our children will learn to help and support each other where needed.
    • Providing young people with mentoring and experience through volunteering. Our volunteers will learn key life and work skills through supporting the children and safeguarding them.
