Sport 4 Life UK
Shortlist – Improving Impact – charities with 4-25 paid staff
Who they are
Founded in 2006 as a small community project in Ladywood, Sport 4 Life UK has developed into the leading sport for employment charity across Birmingham.
What they’ve achieved
Driven by a mission to help young people create better lives for themselves, Sport 4 Life has re-defined its attitude to impact.
The charity now focuses on meaningful impact, and the kind of lasting support that continues long after its programmes have finished. The success of this innovative approach is clear. In just one year the number of qualifications gained by beneficiaries leapt by 16%, while the number of positive job outcomes grew by more than three-quarters.
