At SportWorks, we offer a wide range of programmes, from sports and education to mental health and well-being support.
Community & Inclusive sport
Through the power of sport. We inspire individuals and engage communities.
Our sports programmes use the ‘power of sport’ to tackle a range of issues such as crime, anti-social behaviour, community cohesion and social mobility. We deliver diversionary activities and work with partners such as the Police and Youth Offending Teams to provide positive pathways for participants.
We also focus on developing life and social skills whilst raising aspirations. We have a solid track record of supporting participants to excel and be the best they can be ensuring they benefit from fun, friendships and fitness.
Education & Skills
Through the power of education. We inspire individuals and engage communities.
Our education programmes harness the power of sport to support learners who may be at risk of disengaging with education or who are excluded. Our existing clients including Central Government, Colleges, Prisons and Local Authorities who recognise how sport can engage learners in a way that almost no other subject can.
Mental health & well-being
Through the power of wellbeing. We inspire individuals and engage communities.
Our qualified instructors deliver a range of mobility and strength classes, including chair based exercise, to directly enhance health and wellbeing. Classes cater for a range of abilities and fitness levels and play an important preventative role in developing healthy communities.
Whilst we are motivated to "do more" we wil only ever report evidence which is verified. We never claim to get 100% success rates, as that would mean we are not working with the right people. We firmly believe in the importance of balancing 'good news' stories with 'hard evidence'.
