YST Fundraising
The work we do simply would not be possible without the support of our amazing fundraisers, donors and volunteers. Together we change the lives of so many children and young people across the country, making a huge impact towards our vision by being the most vital part of our #TeamYST family.

COVID-19 Update

We are working as hard as possible to ensure that parents, teachers and young people have supportive resources and are staying active during this testing time. But now, more than ever, we need your help to continue our work. We are asking our community to come together and support us however you can, maybe that’s by hosting an online quiz, challenging yourself, or simply using our text code. Every penny, share and mention count more than ever right now and we can’t do this without you!

Fundraise for YST

There is so much that you can do to support us, and we are so grateful for every single penny that comes our way. When you raise funds for the Youth Sport Trust it enables us to provide life changing programmes, support teachers and build communities through the power of sport, play and physical activity. If you would like to fundraise for us, email us at

Sources of funding support

As a National Children’s Charity we rely on grants and donations to enable us to deliver our mission. Therefore we are not able to offer any grants to directly fund individuals, schools or community groups. Here you will find some of the main organisations and places providing information about funding opportunities.
