“Greenhouse Sports grows new way of helping disadvantaged children during lockdown” – Evening Standard

Avatar Greenhouse Sports

We are delighted to share the Evening Standard’s article highlighting the work that we have been carrying out throughout lockdown. The article covers the use of the Greenhouse Centre as a food bank along with a description of our impact across London for the rest of the year. Many different people have been interviewed including inspirational Coach Luca.

I see sports coaching as a tool to get close to the girls and be a mentor figure. We teach them team work, to persevere and to handle disappointment.

Whilst everyone across the UK has been affected by Covid-19, the reality is that those from disadvantaged backgrounds will suffer the most. At Greenhouse Sports we are always looking for different ways to engage with young people and give them the support they need to develop their, social, thinking, emotional and physical skills.
