Help us create a 3Pillars Project Performance Hub to support children forge brighter futures

Children leave Young Offenders Institutes and 85% return within 2 years. We must make preventative methods and rehabilitation better. 3PP uses sports-based mentoring to transform the lives of children and young men vulnerable to engaging in crime, in custody, and recently released from prison.

Situation for young people in the criminal justice system: In July 2020, The HM Chief Inspector of Prisons, said: “There is now a real risk of psychological decline among prisoners, which needs to be addressed urgently, so that prisoners, children & detainees do not suffer long term damage to their mental health and well-being, and prisons can fulfil their rehabilitative goals”. 69% of young offenders re-offend within 1 year of release and 52% of male prison leavers don’t have any qualifications.


The 3PP Performance Hub will be the first gym of its kind in the UK! Sport is a dynamic way to engage young people heading down a wrong path or trapped in the criminal justice system and build positive mentoring relationships with them. Our coaches and mentors use a hybrid model approach that combines sports coaching with mentoring that supports a young person to create a positive life for themselves. You can be part of the solution by supporting our campaign!
