Deliver - we deliver targeted sport for social change programmes for the most vulnerable young people through Coach Mentors with lived experience.

Inspire - we work with other charities, employers and corporate organisations and create bespoke solutions to extend the power and reach of our programmes for maximum social impact.

Guided by young people, our listening process has directed us to deliver sports programmes that focus on these social issues affecting young people today:

- Knife crime and serious youth violence

- Social media influence and addiction

- Youth unemployment for vulnerable young people

- Disability inclusion and creating equal opportunities

- Mental health issues and developing coping mechanisms

We exist to help young people find solutions to deal with these social issues through the power of sport.

40th Anniversary Challenge

Event dates: Tuesday 23rd March – Friday 31st December

The Change Foundation is an award-winning UK charity that uses sport to change the lives of marginalised young people. We deliver targeted long-term interventions for the most vulnerable young people in our communities through regular sport, personalised mentoring, and wider tailored support.

For the past 40 years, The Change Foundation uses sport as a means not just to engage marginalised young people, but to deliver sustained social impact. All of our work is designed and delivered by Coach Mentors who have shared lived experience and who are often graduates of our programmes. This means that they have a deep understanding of the challenges and barriers that young people face, allowing them to build relevant and high impact programmes and to quickly build authentic and trusting relationships with the young people.

Each year, we support over 1,000 young people to change their lives, whether that’s helping them to move into sustained employment, strengthening their mental health or supporting them to make healthier and more positive life choices. Our goal is to support the most marginalised and at-risk young people to overcome the barriers that they face, helping them to live more confident and fulfilled lives.

In our 40th year, all staff, Trustees and Ambassadors are coming together to run 40 events and challenges to raise funds for the charity to continue to deliver our life changing work.
