But inequality and poverty put the chance to achieve it out of reach for around 4million children and young people across the UK. 

So we’re tearing down barriers and levelling the playing field to make athletics more accessible to everyone. Because we know it has the power to change lives.

Why athletics?


People like you make it possible for us to change young lives.

Without government funding, we rely on the generosity of people who believe every child and young person deserves the chance to reach their potential, realise their dreams or simply discover the joy of athletics.
