Our Approach

SSF combine the power of sport with the principles of youth work in our proven and recognised Sport for Change model. Through a range of person-centred, youth-led programmes we provide positive experiences, inspiring role models, engaging social education, training, and youth volunteering opportunities. As a result, we seek to encourage a positive change in young people’s attitudes and behaviour that enables them to recognise and fulfil their potential, and to make a valuable contribution to their peers and their community.

Developing People

SSF are committed to developing people and specifically supporting those most at risk and furthest away from positive destinations. We build confidence and resilience, skills and aspirations and through the power of sport we can improve learning and employment potential.

Improving Health & Wellbeing

Sport and physical activity have a significant role to play in supporting positive mental and physical wellbeing. We allow young people to take the lead in tackling issues through our network of programmes and beyond. Our youth work approach means we have been successful at engaging those who need support most.

Strengthening Communities

Partnership working and collaboration allow SSF programmes to successfully connect young people to their local communities and access meaningful volunteer and leadership opportunities. Our programme delivery and accessible training mean young people feel empowered and have the skills to “give back” and become inspiring role models to their peers.
