About us

Far too many children in London live on the margins of our society. They often have nowhere to play, and few opportunities to learn outside school.

Solidarity Sports was set up to give disadvantaged children the chance to play sport together because it’s fun, and a great way to learn valuable life skills.

Since 2007 we have worked with many children and families across central London. We play lots of sport together, we’ve developed programmes in healthy eating and in art, and we’ve been on some amazing trips both in this country and abroad.

We are a small charity. We get to know every child we work with well. The children and families who participate in Solidarity Sports belong to one extended family.

We believe in the children we work with: we will never give up on them.

Vision

We want to live in a world where every child, including those on the margins of society, has the confidence to choose any path in life and follow it with strength and skill.

Mission

Our mission is to nurture the wellbeing of very vulnerable children in central London.

We welcome children from all backgrounds, particularly children who have fallen through the gaps and those who have experienced trauma. Our extended family approach cultivates long-term relationships with our children and their families.

Above all, we create a safe and loving environment where happy memories can flourish.

We do this through:

Sports and healthy eating initiatives
Arts activities
Educational and active group trips
Inspiring week-long holidays

Values

Three simple values underpin everything we do at Solidarity Sports:

We are open-minded
We accept people as they are. We are not judgmental.

We listen
We listen to our children. We consider their feelings and then act.

We love
Love is not corny. We all need it in abundance.
