Redgate Sports support children aged 7 to 18 years. The children we support tend to have faced a variety of challenges, often find it hard to take part in sport, and may be finding things difficult on a day-to-day basis:

  • They may be finding things hard at home and/or at school
  • They may be at risk of exclusion or have been excluded
  • It may be that they can thrive in the long-term with a bit more support now

Our specific target groups are:

  • Care experienced children
  • Children with a special educational need diagnosis or concern
  • Children from low income families (free school meals)
  • Children who are vulnerable

We deliver in Mainstream Schools, Special Schools, Alternative Provision Schools. We also deliver to children who are not currently attending education.


It is great that sport is working in a more inclusive way. However, if we are in the business of reaching the most vulnerable and improving life outcomes, then just offering a few sport sessions is not enough.

At Redgate Sports we address inequalities in access to sport. Then, in addition, we address inequalities in the benefits derived from sport. We do this by:

  • Providing physical Activity in a psychologically safe environment
  • Developing New Skills – both sport and wider life skills
  • Strengthen their support network – through mentoring, communication, teamworking
  • Remove barriers to progression – support progression towards sustained participation


Redgate Sports works to directly tackle these issues. We work with a wide range of children who face a variety of complex challenges.

  1. We introduce them to sport or get them playing sport again
  2. We help them through sport with mentoring, wellbeing support, life skills
  3. We help them progress in sport with holiday camps, links to local clubs, activity days and more

If delivered in the right way sport can help establish healthy active lives and can improve life outcomes.
