We believe that sport is the most effective tool to combat the damage inflicted by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) such as abuse, neglect or dysfunctional home environments that are so often passed on from one generation to the next.
Breaking that cycle is at the core of everything we do. We use the power of sport to deliver positive experiences that inspire change in those most in need of a second chance.
Our large portfolio of projects and programmes includes:
The 2nd Chance Project – Uses sport to engage in innovative ways with people in custody, supporting their personal development and desistance from crime.
Coachmakers – Trains sport and health coaches, gym instructors, tutors and mentors to deliver projects that help build a stronger future for young people and have a positive impact on communities.
Pause & Engage – Provides a one-to-one mentoring service for young people at risk of exclusion from school or offending.
The National Alliance of Sport for the Desistance of Crime – Brings together key stakeholders to support the delivery of best practice, policy and strategy nationally and internationally. It also gathers evidence and celebrates success to build a strong case for further investment.
