What is Sport Relief?

 

Sport is powerful. 

It can bring us together, get us moving and make us shout at the telly or hug a total stranger. 

Sport Relief was created to harness that power - that passion - and raise money to help people who need it the most, no matter where they are - in the UK and around the world.

We work hard to find the best, most effective organisations here in the UK and around the world who are taking on the issues of mental healthchild povertydomestic abuse and helping people have a safe place to live. And when we find these organisations, we invest in them and their incredible work.

It’s a simple idea which can have huge impact - just like sport itself. 

Since last Sport Relief in 2018 we’ve invested £82 million to support people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and around the world. 

How your money helps 

Whether you donate to Sport Relief through breaking a sweat or buying a t-shirt, you'll be doing something extraordinary - helping another person out when they need it most. 

Since 2018 you’ve helped us support an incredible 13 million people.
