Who we are
Solidarity Sports was founded in 2007 to provide access to sports and health initiatives for marginalised communities, in disadvantaged areas of London. Our management committee came together because of a shared understanding of the benefits that playing sport brings children. This understanding inspires everything we do. As a charity, Solidarity Sports is run by a group of committed volunteers who are passionate about making a positive difference to young people’s lives.
What we do
We believe that physical fitness is just one of the benefits that sports can bring to a child’s life.
Our goal is to give children the opportunity to experience and enjoy sport. Through this, we are able to help the children develop valuable life skills; enhance their health, self-confidence, people skills and ability to work as a team. These skills will help them in any life path they may choose. By empowering children through sport, we promote a sense of community, sportsmanship and healthy lifestyles.
Within clear boundaries, we encourage children to take the lead in activities that allow them to develop mutual respect, collective thinking and to have fun! Our healthy eating initiatives encourage young people to think about what they eat. We educate children about the importance of having a balanced diet and aim to inspire a passion for good, wholesome healthy food as well as a passion for life.
Diversity, opportunity and community are core to everything we do.
