2nd Chance Project

2nd Chance Project

We use the power of sport to repair broken lives and build a stronger future for young people.

We achieve this by:

  • Leading on the use of sport for the desistance from crime – we convene key stakeholders to support the delivery of best practice, policy and strategy. We also provide a global platform to share learning and celebrate success.
  • Creating chances – we train a huge workforce of coaches, mentors and thought leaders who use the power of sport to deliver positive experiences to more people in need of a second chance and build a stronger future for young people.

 The Need

Breaking the damaging cycle of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is at the core of everything we do. 

 Our vision

By using the power of sport to deliver positive experiences to people most in need of a second chance, we can reduce offending and support England and Wales to have the lowest prison population in Western Europe.

 Our Programmes

All our objectives are delivered through a range of innovative programmes.
