About Us

Established in 2002, Greenhouse Sports charity is leading the fight for a future where London’s young people are supported and empowered, whatever their challenges, through sport. We coach and mentor young people from deprived backgrounds because the crisis for children living in deprivation is real and it is urgent. Children from the poorest families are 3 times more likely to not participate in any extra-curricular activities compared to those from wealthier families, and they lack many opportunities that are available to their wealthier peers. They are more likely to leave school with no qualifications, be excluded from school get involved in crime and gang violence and suffer from mental health issues.

Greenhouse are here to make sure they get the best possible chance to do well in life and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties. We run extracurricular breakfast, lunch and after-school clubs at mainstream and special educational needs schools across London. Young people who have the opportunity to play sport regularly and be mentored by coaches who are role-models, become adults who have confidence, resilience and leadership potential.

Join us in our fight for young people in London. For many, London is a great place for children to grow up in. Greenhouse Sports wants London to be a great place for all children to grow up.
