At Sported we have long advocated the power of sport – and in particular grassroots groups – to transform young lives and build stronger, safer communities. Our ‘In sport, we trust’ research provides compelling evidence of how deep sport’s influence extends and how the values it instills underpins the key individual and social outcomes it delivers, whether it’s improved education and employability, mental health, social integration or reduced crime and anti-social behaviour.
