About Sported – www.sported.org.uk/

Sported is one of the leading Sport for Development charities in the UK, helping more than 3,000 community sport and youth groups survive and thrive. Our members use the power of sport to transform the lives of disadvantaged young people and build stronger, safer communities.

In 2005, when Sir Keith Mills, as International President and CEO of London 2012, and Lord Seb Coe took their team to Singapore to bid for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, they made a number of promises.

The most ambitious of these promises was that if successful, they would use the Games to ‘Inspire a Generation’.

Sported was founded in 2008 by Sir Keith Mills as his personal commitment to deliver on this important promise and to ensure a fitting legacy was left in the UK.

His ambition was to not only inspire a generation to play sports but to use sport as a way of inspiring disadvantaged young people to overcome their personal hurdles and fulfill their potential in life.
