About Us

The Youth Sport Trust is a registered charity, established in 1994 to create a future where every child enjoys the life-changing benefits that come from play and sport.

We pioneer new ways of using sport to improve children’s wellbeing and give them a brighter future.

Our programmes have been developed in conjunction with a wide range of partners, with the aim of delivering high quality PE and sport to all young people, regardless of ability.

We work closely with Schools, Colleges and School Sport Partnerships, as well as government and corporate sponsors.
