Who We Are

The Alliance of Sport in Criminal Justice (AoS) is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation registered with the Charity Commission in England and Wales (No.1183521).

The world as we see it

Reducing crime is one of the world’s most complex and challenging problems. This is not surprising when you consider that the majority of children, young people and adults who are in, or more likely to enter the Criminal Justice System experience greater levels of adversity and trauma, often because of the conditions in which they were born or grew up in.

At AoS, everything we do is informed by the evidence, our beliefs and values. Which includes a mixture of lived, learnt and qualified experience. We know first-hand that if used correctly, physical activity and sport are amongst the most cost-effective and powerful tools that can be leveraged for transformational change.

However sadly, and despite a growing body of evidence, the use of physical activity and sport as tools to reduce violence, crime and reoffending, often remain a ‘nice to have’ and not ‘a must’… Our goal is to shift this anomaly!

About us

We envision a just world free from crime, and our mission is to build a better and safer society, together.

Our values are:

  • Lead the way – We bring together key players and coach them to become high-performing teams.
  • Build the case for change – We review performance and analyse statistics to create solution focussed tactics.
  • Make the difference – We execute winning game plans with creativity, passion and commitment.

Moving forward, we draw inspiration from our motto #TogetherWeDid, allowing the spirit of togetherness to become a golden thread that runs through our organisation. This includes our dedication to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion, and our commitment to the development, happiness and wellbeing of TeamAoS.
