Read Greenhouse Sports’ Annual Review 2013-14
It is with great pride that we share with you our Greenhouse Sports’ Annual Review for 2013-14. Over the course of the year, we grew and improved our programmes in judo, tennis, swimming, football, basketball, table tennis and volleyball – thus working with more schools and young Londoners than ever – and strove constantly to help young people living in the city realise their full potential.
“The whole team are delighted with our achievements over the last twelve years and we are thrilled to be building on that success,” says Michael de Giorgio, Founder and CEO of Greenhouse Sports. “In 2015, we will continue to work across London through our 37 mainstream school programmes, 10 Special Educational Needs (SEN) school programmes, and 4 community clubs, all the time looking to increase the numbers of young people benefiting from our outstanding sports coaching and mentoring.”
Greenhouse Sports continues to work to address issues experienced by young people growing up in disadvantaged communities in inner London. In mainstream schools, we harness the power of sport to tackle problems that lead to absenteeism and consequent underachievement. In Special Educational Needs (SEN) schools – where the provision of physical activity is generally limited – we also help young people work towards independence. Through our community clubs we expand the social and cultural horizons of young people from all backgrounds.
Key Facts and Figures for 2013-14:
- On average, our participants attended 4 more days of school than other pupils
