Tom Burstow

Tom has been working on major charity partnerships for more than 20 years, much of which has been connected to the use of sport as a tool for social change.

Through the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and then Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, Tom led a team generating millions of pounds for UNICEF whilst reaching global audiences to raise awareness of the role sport can play in benefitting the lives of children around the world.

In 2017, Tom moved to the role of Deputy CEO at Sported; a UK foundation with a network of over 2500 community groups using sport for social change across the UK. Sported provide member organisations with the skills and opportunities they need to sustain and expand their work with young people in some of the most challenging circumstances in the country. His main functions focus on the identification, development and management of major partnerships across sectors in support of Sported’s vision and objectives.
