Support Us


The vital work we do would not be possible without our fantastic partners, funders, and supporters whose generous support makes a difference to the lives of children and young people.

Now more than ever, our children need the power of play and sport. We are seeing a crisis in young people’s wellbeing, with rising numbers reporting symptoms of anxiety and depression, alongside a decline in levels of physical activity.
