The Access To Sports Project
Who we are
Who we are
The Access to Sports Project is a registered charity, with an 18 year track record of delivering programmes designed to increase participation in a wide variety of sports and physical activities. Our work is targeted across the boroughs of Haringey, Islington and Hackney.
We aim to increase and sustain participation in sport and physical activity, especially for disadvantaged people or communities by providing:
- a range of accessible and affordable sports activities for young people in local venues. This work is carried out in local venues, notably housing estates, parks and other open spaces.
- accredited training for local people enabling them to gain qualifications as sports coaches/leaders.
- providing support and assistance to local sports organisations and voluntary groups interested in sports (eg. sports groups or community/voluntary organisations).
The majority of our services are provided free of charge or at low cost to participants and we remain committed to providing opportunities to the most disadvantaged people in the areas in which we operate.
Upcoming fundraising events
On Sunday 3rd October 2021 our member of staff Kj De Morais will take part in the london Marathon to raise funds to support delivery of our weekly programme of Sports for People with Learning Disabilities delivered in partnership with Pedal Power.
