What we do

Sported is a free membership organisation that supports community sport clubs and groups across the UK that deliver Sport for Development.

These amazing groups are using the power of sport to tackle the root causes of some of society’s biggest problems - crime, anti-social behaviour and obesity, to name but a few. More than that, they are giving disadvantaged young people the opportunities, confidence and support to overcome their personal hurdles and succeed in life.

Unleashing the power of community sport

    We support the inspirational local heroes and heroines that run these clubs by providing free business and financial support so that they have the skills, knowledge and resources to continue their amazing work. We have a network of volunteer business mentors who work with our members on a one-to-one basis, providing expert consultancy on business issues ranging from financial planning and fundraising, to marketing and governance.


    We know sport can be a highly effective tool for transforming young lives and the communities in which they live. What’s more we are serious about proving it. That’s why we have developed Sportworks, a pioneering measurement tool for help our members to quantify the impact and cost saving to society of their work.


    We do all this because sport works.
