Summary of project:

Sport 4 Life UK is a sport-for-employment charity that believes in a level playing field where every young person has the opportunity to create a better future for themselves. Sport 4 Life UK is proud to create better futures for young people by improving their employability and key life skills, through its two structured sports-themed programmes.

We have organically developed two successful but highly structured programmes, which we know can meet the need, but ultimately aren’t flexible in achieving the full degree of impact we want to achieve with our young people. We now have a degree of experience to deliver a more personalised, bespoke and young person-centred approach (as opposed to programme centred) – with young people’s needs at the heart of what we do every day. This shift will generate increased impact. In partnership with Aleron and our specialist provider Thought & Impact, we have sought to develop an ambitious plan, which emphasises robust conceptual work leading to the introduction of a practical, operational framework. We are keen to create a robust conceptual outcomes framework which will then inform a service model shift (programme design) and shift in performance management.
