#TimesChristmasAppeal

Sported selected as The Times and Sunday Times Christmas Charity Appeal beneficiary!

Welcome to Sported.

We are a UK wide charity promoting fairness and equity for young people through grassroot sport and physical activity.

Reach

We support 2,600 grassroot groups deeply rooted within their communities, 45% of which are operating in the most deprived areas of the UK.

Include

Our network is open to any community group using sport or physical activity to make a difference to young people's lives. The groups in our network tend to be small, voluntary led organisations who are often under-funded and under-resourced.

Empower

We champion the highly committed, passionate local people who often give up their time voluntarily to run initiatives to help young people from their community. We provide groups with professional expertise, resources and operational support, free of charge, to help them survive and thrive.
