We represent a core belief that better futures are made by sport.

In 2017/18, 240,000 children in Scotland were living in relative poverty.  

By 2021 it is predicted that more than 1 in 3 children in Scotland will be living in poverty. 

The Sporting Chance Foundation is here to champion better futures made by sport.



Today's society is dealing with some very real issues of inequality as well as child obesity and poor social behaviour amongst our youth; and this is in the face of some tough public spending cuts.

The Foundation is a vehicle that tackles equality issues head on.

Sport has the unique ability to give young people a positive focus in life regardless of any other difficulties they face. Opening up a sporting pathway for a young person can positively impact their health and well-being. It can also improve self-esteem, promote social inclusion and integration, as well as provide opportunities to develop leadership and other social skills.



Missing out deprives young people of transformative opportunities.


We create grassroot solutions to meaningfully improve the lives of young people and their futures.
