The Youth Sport Trust is a national children’s charity using the power of sport to create a better future for all young people from the age of 18 months to 18 years. They deliver this mission by working closely with young people and through the systems that support young people across three key strands:

Sporting Start – they give every child the chance to access high-quality sport and physical activity during their vital, formative years

Sporting chance – they ensure equal opportunities for young people to access sport and physical activity, no matter their ability, disability, gender, culture or background

Sporting best – they use the power of sport and physical activity to give young people the personal attributes to be the best they can be

What makes Youth Sport Trust different

They are on a mission to build a brighter future for children and young people. They do this through a number of different ways but pride themselves on being thought leaders through sharing best practice to mobilise others and through campaigning to increase awareness about the power of PE and school sport.

Other ways to support

Youth Sport Trust runs a comprehensive programme of fundraising campaigns and events that you can get involved in, for example the London Marathon, charity cycle rides and National School Sport Week. They also provide volunteer opportunities through a range of our programmes and events.
