About Us Creativity in Sport works in partnership with schools, local authorities and government departments and offers fresh opportunities to young people who need support and guidance with emotional and behavioural difficulties.
We have worked with over 50 schools, enthused and motivated hundreds of young people who are disengaged and disadvantaged, incorporated numerous family members in our programmes and successfully created job opportunities for several of our ex offenders and course participants so they can inspire and lead by example to the benefit of the local community.
