Story

WHAT WE DO

Redgate Sports support children who need a bit more help. Many of the children we work with are in the care system or have a special educational need - many will have experienced trauma.

We provide sport in a supportive and safe environment and then we combine this with mentoring and wellbeing support.

We often start to support children via their school - and we continue to support many children at their school on an ongoing basis with sport and mentoring.

What we really like to do is to help children progress to sport outside of school. We know the benefit that the sport community brings - training, teams, competition, team mates. So, as and when our students are ready we support this progression.

We run holiday camps, activity days, after school clubs, evening sport clubs and we also place children in local sport programmes. We also support with kit, transport, coaching fees, whatever is needed to help the child get started.

WHAT PARENTS/CARERS SAY ABOUT US

"M has absolutely loved Redgate these last two years and Fridays were generally good days at school due to the Redgate activity. Much of what Redgate helped M with was and is transferrable in other areas of M’s life, including in school and other social environments. Redgate very quickly found some strengths in M and M himself quickly built trust in the Redgate team.

Today, M is two weeks into a new mainstream Secondary School. He’s in a class size of 30 and doing incredibly well – we have had various comments made about how polite, friendly, calm and caring he is – including from his PE teacher specifically saying M has excellent sportsmanship in PE! I am absolutely certain some of the success we are seeing today is because of Redgate’s involvement over the last two years."

WHAT THE CHILDREN SAY

“Redgate Sports is a brilliant company. They have great staff members and volunteers. They have good relationships with all the children and try and get the best out of them. The sports and talking that they do with the children are great and important as children who are in care or with disabilities can get stressed really easily. The support helps them to stay calm.

The children have good relationships with the staff members and they can do all sports including football, tennis, cricket, climbing – even going to the gym.”
