Location

Situation

We are situated in an area of very high levels of overcrowding and Coram's Fields provides unique access to safe outside space for children and young people from across London. Many local residents do not have access to outside space, and many local schools do not have any outside space for sport. The UK has one of the highest levels of obesity in Europe and sport is a great way to tackle this. Sport can also be used to tackle anti-social behaviour in the community.

Solution

Our sports programme provides fantastic value for money and reaches over 300 children and young people per week. We also provide sports pitches for all local schools free of charge and space for sports days and tournaments. Many of the young people who use our sports facilities do not have anywhere else to play and it is their only chance to exercise and have fun.
