What we've been up to this month:

We’re excited to announce that we are finalists for the “Sporting Initiative” category at the 2017 Birmingham Awards.

Your support will help to bring to light the great work we do with disadvantaged young people across Birmingham, supporting them to improve the employability and key life skills with our sports-themed employability programmes.

Young people like Caitlin, who joined Sport 4 Life employability programme short on confidence and lacking direction in her life. Throughout the programme, Caitlin grew in confidence, gained two accredited qualifications, and showed real leadership and drive for self development. This was infectious and really helped others within the programme to push on and take advantage of the services available. Since completing the programme, Caitlin is currently undertaking a Traineeship in sports coaching, has set her sights on working in sports development, and is firmly back on track to achieve this goal.
