As Wales’ largest network of local community sports groups tackling inequality for young people facing disadvantage, Sported empowers the local heroes running community sport groups to help their group survive so young people in their communities can thrive.
We have a particular focus on tackling inequality. 1 in 3 young people in Wales live in material deprivation. Alongside marginalised groups such as BAME, Women and Girls and disabled young people, they are significantly less likely to benefit from the positive social outcomes of engaging in sport and physical activity.
Delivering an ‘at-scale’ solution to building the sustainability and capability of groups in areas of deprivation.
Enabling M&S to engage with and support young people in community settings who are overcoming barriers to reach their full potential.
Working in collaboration with other major agencies to direct COVID 19 specific funds to support groups tackling inequaities.
