Over the last 20 years the Youth Charter has pioneered the role that sport can play in the social and human development of disaffected young people from disadvantaged communities.

The Youth Charter’s work has actively developed social inclusion programmes and sports projects that assist regeneration and renewal with community cohesion and the wider social and cultural benefits it brings.

The Youth Charter’s work began in Hulme and Moss Side, Manchester, where its legacy, projects and programmes helped establish the sport social and human development for peace movement that now promotes the healthy and physical lifestyle benefits in communities lo– cally, nationally and internationally.

Primarily the organisation develops and deploys social research, support, expertise, advocacy programmes, projects and tools to nurture young people and communities to be more life skill enabled and participation empowered to maximize their life potential through sporting and cultural integra- tion.

The Youth Charter is a UK registered charity and UN accredited NGO that champions social inclusion and community cohesion through sport.

“You can’t wait for someone else to do legacy, you’ve got to take a bit of responsibility for yourself.”
