About Organisation

Our charity was set up in 2012 to provide sport, leisure and health services to communities of inner London, in the interests of social welfare and to provide special support to persons who have a need of such by reason of their age, infirmity or disablement, poverty or social and economic circumstances, with the object of improving the conditions of life.

The charity’s longstanding management has:
• Planned/overseen strategic development including significant progress against national
targets in the most deprived region of the UK
• Led work in the areas of PE & School sport training; Competitions/Events; Club/Community
Sport; Disability Sport; Coaching/Leadership/Volunteering; Olympic Legacy;
Health/Exercise/Obesity Reduction schemes
• Won national recognition for outstanding practice in engaging children from inner
city/disadvantaged backgrounds, including a number of awards

In 2017, the Platform Cricket programme became the charity's flagship project.
Only 0.03% of inner London’s Primary School Children could take up meaningful community cricket participation now, even if they wanted to, and most London’s cricket clubs are in traditionally more affluent areas which restricts access and diversity even further.

Platform Cricket’s objectives are to:
• Increase the number of children in London participating in cricket
• Increase the number of children from disadvantaged and BAME backgrounds participating
in cricket
• Support personal and social development through cricket

This is achieved by the creation of local cricket hubs which incorporate Primary Schools, community partners and a brand new, accessible “Pop Up” youth cricket club.
