20 years of the Youth Sport Trust: anniversary publication

A message from our chair, Baroness Sue Campbell CBE.

A message from our chair, Baroness Sue Campbell CBE:

Over the past 20 years we have worked with many schools and young people and this special anniversary publication celebrates all that we have collectively achieved. 

It illustrates just how important it is to support wellbeing, leadership and achievement in young people from their primary years, through secondary school and into the world beyond. It also outlines just how powerful a catalyst sport and PE can be and the significant difference it makes to all aspects of young people's lives.

It has been a pleasure to work with everyone on this journey. Together we have inspired millions of young people and been at the forefront of improving lives through PE, sport and physical activity.  

The Youth Sport Trust has constantly campaigned for and sought government, corporate and partnership support to tackle some of the significant issues young people face today. I want to say a very heartfelt thank you for your continued support to the Youth Sport Trust journey.

Baroness Sue Campbell CBE
Chair, Youth Sport Trust
