Greenhouse Sports is a London-based charity that uses sport to engage young people and improve their life chances. We partner with schools, placing full-time coaches into the school environment to deliver programmes before, during and after school programmes that empower and inspire young people growing up in disadvantage.

We believe in the power of sport to:

  • Inspire young people to fulfil their true potential
  • Develop the Social, Thinking, Emotional and Physical (STEP) skills they will need to thrive in later life
  • Break down the barriers that are often associated with growing up in disadvantaged or vulnerable communities

Our Impact

We believe it is not the lack of ability that holds young people back from success, but a lack of opportunity. Find out more about the difference we make, where we work and why we’re needed.
