sported. are the UK’S leading sport for development charity, harnessing the impact that sport has on communities inspired by the Olympics and aims to demonstrate how the vibrant Voluntary and Community sector impact on local communities.

sported. aims to support the voluntary and community groups that use sport as a tool to overcome local challenges targeting groups within the age range 11- 25.  

  • Is your organisation looking to use sport to provide opportunities for youngers?
  • Perhaps there are issues with crime and antisocial behaviour due to lack of opportunities in the evening?
  • Your group may have identified a need to increase physical activity within a particular community;
  • Perhaps sport is to be used to engage with particular communities which may otherwise be isolated as a way of breaking down barriers;

sported. aims to support groups looking to overcome needs such as the above and the small grants programme may be ideal to get your project off the ground.
