Did you know...

Last year, Youth Sport Trust were able to support more than 300,000 young people across the UK. Sport and play can help tackling mental health issues, building young people’s confidence and sense of belonging or equipping them with the skills to thrive into adulthood.

At a time when children’s wellbeing has been in decline and lifestyles have never been less active, the charity knows there is still so much more to do. The charity is incredibly grateful to their generous supporters who are helping them work towards a future where no young person has to miss out.
