How Sport Changes Lives

Sport is more than a kickabout in the park. It creates communities, improves health and wellbeing, saves lives and brings about social change the world over. We champion Sport for Change by funding organisations in the UK and internationally that harness the power of sport for good.

Picture of Milla

Milla, 11, UK

MILLA moved house four times in five years. Constantly leaving friendships behind left her feeling lonely and unsettled. Thanks to Sport Relief cash, she’s learnt to skateboard at Projekts MCR, a group that tackles gender stereotypes and teaches girls new skills. Projekts gives her a place to socialise and gain confidence, get support and have fun.

Picture of Sipho

Sipho, 15, South Africa

SIPHO was skipping school, stealing money and taking drugs by the age of 12. But thanks to Waves for Change – a surf therapy project funded with money raised by Sport Relief – he’s turned his life around. He loves to surf and, with help from the therapists at the project, has tackled his addictions and learnt to cope with all life throws at him.
