At SportInspired, we believe that happy, healthy and confident children can achieve anything. We exist to help young people from the most underprivileged communities across the UK to realise their full potential, using sport as a vehicle. By bringing together people from all walks of life, in their communities, delivering sports and employability programmes, we can help young people improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
Our vision is of connected communities, where people enjoy being active. We work with partners across the UK to develop skills, build connections and inspire activity in the community. Our programmes are devised to showcase local expertise and opportunities, raising awareness and building confidence to give it a go.
1 in 5 of the 800,000 children that leave primary school every year in the UK are obese. This number is rising as activity levels continue to fall. Children across the country are labelling themselves 'not sporty' and this is having a severe effect on their motivation and confidence to get active, which a large part of society's issues today can be attributed to. At SportInspired, we help communities get active and enjoy it.
We work with over 10,000 children and 4,000 volunteers every year, bringing together communities through fun and inclusive sport and skills-building activities. As a result of our programmes, communities work closer together and children are more confident, resilient, active and connected.
Sportinspired Ltd aims to:
- Improve the physical and mental wellbeing of primary school children by helping them find and practice a sport they love.
- Improve the skills and confidence of young people, by providing skills-based training leading to nationally recognised qualifications, and ultimately increased prospects of employment.
- Improve the physical and mental wellbeing of volunteers who take part in our programmes, as well as connecting them to their employers, colleagues and communities.
