About us

The Change Foundation is an award-winning charity that uses sport to change the lives of marginalised young people. We deliver targeted long-term interventions for the most vulnerable young people through Coach Mentors with lived experience, providing regular sport, personalised mentoring and work-related opportunities.

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

Innovate - we design programmes with young people, using creative methodologies and testing ideas by delivering 6-12 month pilot programmes.

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.

Between the 7th and 9th of July, kayakers will be navigating the Venetian canals in a race against time, kayaking through 40 bridges, then taking on the challenge of circumnavigating the beautiful island of Murano, before returning back to an idyllic canal-side restaurant to celebrate their achievement over a glass of prosecco and fine Italian cuisine.

This time and distance challenge will the kayakers to the limit whilst raising funds for multi-award winning charity, the Change Foundation.
