Trusts and Foundations

The work we do would simply not be possible without the generous support of our trust and foundation funders and partners whose backing enables us to continue to expand our programmes, reach more young people and grow the impact of our work.

How we work

We work in partnership together with organisations to add value and develop collaborative and innovative programmes to realise shared goals and ambitions. Vital support from trusts and foundations helps us to amplify our reach and maximise our positive impact on young people's lives. Find out more about our impact here.

We welcome the chance to speak to new charitable organisations and aim to develop meaningful partnerships by working together with funders with whom we share mutual values and ambitions to change the lives of more children and young people.

Project funding

Working closely with young people and communities at the local level to identify and develop solutions to local need is at the very heart of what we do. Project funding empowers us to work in targeted locations and with specific groups of young people. By working together with local partners and stakeholders we can develop and tailor our programmes to directly deliver impact at a local level.

Unrestricted funding

Unrestricted funding is invaluable because it allows us to develop our strategy and remain flexible to focus our support where it is needed most. We want to say a big thank you to our unrestricted funders including The John Armitage Charitable Trust.

If you share our vision of a future where every child enjoys the life-changing benefits that come from play and sport and are interested in supporting our work then we invite you to get in touch to start a conversation at [email protected].

The Youth Sport Trust Team has been a genuine pleasure to work with over the years – ever-dedicated, highly professional but hugely relational and very responsive. Your real and genuine commitment to young people was so evident at the last awards event I attended: your inclusivity was a model for us all. It is these important achievements and ways of working which we will take away from our work with YST and how we will talk about your work with us.
