Solidarity Sports
We are a charity that harnesses the transformative power of play and exercise to help vulnerable children recover from complex trauma. Our goal is to nurture the confidence of every child we work with and develop valuable life skills to help them reach their full potential. As a volunteer in our half-term project you will build positive relationships and play with our children in a variety of fun activities. This can be anything from bowling, skating, rock-climbing, to a museum trip!
ABOUT US: 

When Solidarity Sports was established in 2007, we aimed to engage children in sports--a fun, accessible way to bring kids together and promote good health and wellness. Solidarity Sports has harnessed the transformative power of play to nurture disadvantaged children recovering from complex trauma. We support children's healing through sports, healthy eating, arts, educational trips, mentorship programmes and holidays within the UK and abroad.
What binds these programmes is a commitment to creating a safe, open-minded, inclusive and loving environment, where we can play together and happy memories are made. Days out with the children are our hearts and soul! During every school holiday, children join us for fun trips from Monday to Friday. This can range from twirling on the skating rink, throwing stones into the sea at Brighton Beach, or nourishing our minds at the stunning Natural History Museum.

WHY OUR WORK MATTERS: 

We work with vulnerable children in West London (aged 5-11) with a history of various difficulties, including mental health, special education needs, history of abuse, etc. More than 90% of our children are referred to by social services and live in very difficult environments. We need enthusiastic volunteers that are ready to dedicate your energy and affection!

WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN OUR PEOPLE: 

Our children have been through a lot in their short lives; it is vital we listen and give them a safe and fun space to express themselves. You MUST have a passion for working with children. We want to create a happy, loving environment for our children.
