Sport 4 Life UK
Sport 4 Life UK is the charity that changes the lives of Birmingham’s most disadvantaged young people through the power of sport. Founded in 2006 as a small community project in the ward of Ladywood, we have developed into the leading youth and sports charity across the city of Birmingham.
We understand the difficulties young people can face in their day to day lives, and our programmes are designed to help bring out the best in the young people we work with, whilst providing them with high quality sessions and advise.
Young people born into disadvantage face an uphill struggle from the start. Many lack positive role models or positive aspirations, and make the wrong choice in life. They fail at school and then fail to move into work. This culture of disillusionment and lack of opportunity is inherited to their own children, repeating the cycle. Sport 4 Life UK believe that no young person should be trapped by the circumstances of their birth. We believe in young people. Our vision is to reverse this culture by giving every young person we work with the opportunity to make a positive change in their lives and to be the best they can be. Our sports-themed educational programmes provide a helping hand on this journey.
