Sports journalist of the year and Greenhouse Sports Trustee Matthew Syed wrote for The Times today about the impact Greenhouse Sports has on young people in London and the power of sport to change lives.

“Greenhouse wants to develop young people who are resilient, curious and capable of responding to the toughest challenges,” he writes. “Psychologists call it ‘growth mindset'”.

Growth mindset is a part of the ethos Greenhouse Sport coaches employ as they focus on using the principles of sport to help our participants develop additional life skills.
