Sported and Deutsche Bank have been shortlisted in the Charity Times Awards 2017 in the Corporate Community Local Involvement category for sporteducate.
Sporteducate was developed to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds (aged 11-18) acquire the skills and aspirations required to find employment after education. Uniquely combining sport with education and employability workshops, the programme has benefited nearly 2,000 disadvantaged young people since it was launched in May 2013
Sanaa Qureshi, sporteducate Programme Manager at Sported, said: “We are delighted that sporteducate has been shortlisted for the Corporate Community Local Involvement award. Deutsche Bank volunteers played a key role in supporting the young people and club leaders, and shows what can be achieved when you design a programme around the needs of the local community.”
