Why we exist

We exist to see an end to youth unemployment in the UK. In the areas where we operate, up to 1 in 5 young people are unemployed and in need of our help.




What we do

We support unemployed 16-24 year olds to move into sustained employment using the power of sport.

Our award-winning programmes operate in 14 cities and 38 local communities in England and Scotland.




Our Three Golden Rules

We believe in complete transparency and a robust approach to impact measurement. We have created our three golden rules:

1. We will never over-claim what we do.

2. All percentages include sample sizes to avoid being misleading.

3. We have evidence to prove all of our outcomes.

It should be measured by presenting what we do in a transparent way and allowing you to decide whether you think we are successful (or not). Read more
