Organisations We've Partnered With
Sport England is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport who has provided us with £10,000 funding to go towards kitting out our new facility. Their aim is simple; "Established by Royal Charter in 1996, we’re determined to give everyone in England the chance to benefit from sport and physical activity. "
Their mission is to invest in sport and physical activity to make it a normal part of life for everyone in England, regardless of who you are. "Because it’s not always a level playing field. Right now, the opportunities to get involved in sport and activity – and reap the rewards of being active – depend too much on your background, your gender, your bank balance and your postcode."
Power To Change
Power To Change is a not for profit charitable organisation who has kindly funded us with £10,000 to put towards kitting out our new facility. Power to Change’s vision is that by 2025, more communities in England will run businesses that give them power to change what matters to them. They will create more resilient places that are better to live and work in for everyone. Our new Theory of Change shows what we do to achieve this, and the changes we aim to see.
