The Story

Heritage Charity London's mission is to give children access to education and to ameliorate the effects of deprivation on disengaged and disadvantaged children and young people. It is the one of the most powerful tool we can use to enable a positive change in the world. Education reduces poverty, helps prevent disease, empowers women, and inspires young people to be agents of positive change. Our charity is dedicated to improving the lives of children and young people through a range of activities including sports, team building activities and games, visual arts, and swimming. Our London Sports Project initiative is a 20-week sports programme to engage children aged 7-14 years. Playing sport helps children learn to control their emotions and channel negative feelings in a positive way. It also helps children to develop patience and understand that it can take a lot of practice to improve both their physical skills and what they do in school. As our charity is focused on education, we strongly believe that PE and playing sports as an extracurricular activity plays a huge part in the development of children. Playing sports is the most natural form of delivering wider social outcomes as children and young adults bond during the games and embrace their differences. We are using sports as a tool to improve young peoples lives mainly through developing life skills such as engaged learning, focus, and self-control, taking on challenges, and critical thinking. By doing so, we are also reducing crime and anti-social behavior as involving kids in the activities who are otherwise left out redirects their engagement towards sports and their peers. Our aim and mission is: to ameliorate the effects of deprivation of disengaged and disadvantaged children, young people and adults. We achieve our mission by providing stimulating and constructive Sports, Creative Arts, Life skills, and Holiday playscheme programmes, with long term outcome benefits. During this programme, Heritage Charity London runs after-school activities facilitated by a dedicated team of volunteers who work with participants to carry out the sports projects which allow them to build life skills and develop confidence while engaging with peers. Our activities take place during out-of-school hours and school holidays. We envision using sport to improve young peoples lives mainly through developing life skills such as engaged learning, focus, and self-control, taking on challenges, and critical thinking. By doing so, we are also reducing crime and Anti-social behaviour as involving kids in the activities who are otherwise left out redirects their engagement towards sports and their peers. We have relevant policies in place (eg, safeguarding), which are reviewed annually and are in line with industry standards. We specialise in user-led activities. Heritage Charity London volunteers and parents/carers are partners in all our programmes, helping design, monitor and - wherever appropriate - deliver activities. We put in place structures for supporting them in this role, including user-led steering groups, which meet regularly to help oversee, shape and develop projects. There is now a greater need to provide training for children and young people in how to protect themselves and build their confidence through activities and skills training to mitigate the impacts resulting from Covid-19. Children must continue to receive support so that additional difficulties which have materialised from Covid19 are dealt with promptly to ensure that their difficulties do not swell into major mental health issues. Our passionate team here at Heritage Charity London is excited to start our sport initiative but our mission will not be fulfilled until it is supported by YOU. You are the one who can change the lives of children. So why not support us and get involved?
