The Youth Sport Trust is working to create a future where every child enjoys the life-changing benefits of play and sport. We want to increase levels of physical activity to develop healthier and happier children and young people. Our activity includes engagement with government, politicians, other charities, think tanks and more to develop a policy climate in which more children are empowered to be physically active.
The work of the Youth Sport Trust is insight led. We use compelling research and evidence to provide evidence of need and demonstrate the power of PE, sport and physical activity to transform the health, happiness and wellbeing of young people.
The YST Knowledge Bank contains key statistics and evidence about young people and physical activity, play and sport. It is updated on a regular basis to make sure it contains the latest information.
It can be filtered and searched to help you find the statistics or evidence you are looking for. It includes key topics such as young people's physical, mental and social wellbeing and well as statistics around education and society.
The awards celebrate individuals and groups of young people who, working alongside Youth Sport Trust & Youth Sport Trust International over the past year, have made a real and impactful change to their life and the lives of others.
The shortlisted young people and winners will be recognised for their activity in the fields of Physical Education, physical activity, play and school sport in a range of award categories.
Looking for examples of our work? We work with thousands of schools and young people who are ready to share their story about the power of PE and sport. Look at some of them here.
