Set up in 2016, Sporting Chance provides education and training opportunities to people that may have barriers on accessing mainstream education. We use the passion sport can bring to engage and encourage people to unlock their full potential.
Our work intends to offer opportunities to the people in society who deserve the opportunities to overcome their life experiences and unlock their potential via sport. Our model looks to "prevent" further involvement in offending services by "retaining" our young people's engagement and commitment, ultimately leading to positive "progression" through life".
Sporting Chance empowers children and young people through sport and fitness to gain qualifications, achieve employment and improve social skills. Aligned to this, we specialise in working with schools and disadvantaged/ disabled groups to improve health outcomes via our innovative sport, exercise and health programmes.
