Our impact

Our projects improve the wellbeing of individuals, communities and society as a whole.

Our investments increase participation in a range of activities: sport and physical activity; culture and the arts; social action; volunteering.

This participation leads people to develop and realise their potential, work productively and creatively, and build relationships.

There are many barriers to people getting involved – financial, psychological, geographical, lack of opportunities or because they feel life’s struggles simply make it too hard. This has a negative impact on our sense of happiness and our ability to be the person we want to be. Our projects overcome these barriers, creating new opportunities and empowering people to get out, be involved and feel better.
