Why We Exist
Sport 4 Life UK believes in a level playing field where every young person has the opportunity to create a better future for themselves.
What We Do
Sport 4 Life UK is proud to create a better future for young people (aged 12 to 29) by improving their employability and key life skills, through our sports-themed personal development programmes.
We deliver two core programmes:
TEENS: A personal development programme for socially excluded 12 - 16 year olds. This initiative is designed to prevent young people becoming NEET in the future. It is a proactive and strategic intervention, tackling the issue of youth unemployment at source, by developing their life skills such as motivation, respect, teamwork, leadership and confidence.
NEETS: An employability and personal development programme for 16 - 29 year olds who are NEET. This initiative focuses on developing young people's employability and key life skills. It provides them with support to move into sustained education, employment, or training.
