How the charity works

Sporting Chances are created by the imagination of the participants and by the support of those who give their time and energy to help make dreams come true.

Give Them a Sporting Chance is run entirely by volunteers, we have no paid charity workers.

We are honoured to have HRH The Princess Royal as Guardian of Give Them a Sporting Chance. Her practical support, guidance and commitment have been an inspiration to all involved in the charity.

Past Sporting Chances

"I think that Give Them a Sporting Chance is a great charity providing fantastic experiences not only for the carers and people with disabilities, but also for the sports people who are lucky enough to be involved.."
