Sported is a charity dedicated to helping the inspirational people who are working every day to improve the lives of people and tackle the problems that matter in their community.
The charity specialises in supporting the survival and growth of community organisations using Sport for Development. Its membership network extends to over 2,500 sport clubs, youth groups, and small charities across the UK. Each of its members uses the power of sport and physical activity to prevent and counter the most pressing societal issues impacting young people today: youth violence, community cohesion, and mental health, to name but a few.
The majority of community groups are under-funded and under-resourced. Sported helps these groups by providing free capacity building services and matching them with skilled volunteers, who support in key operational areas fundamental to organisations’ long-term survival and success.
