The Rugby Portobello Trust has supported the North Kensington community since 1884, helping the most vulnerable children and young people to overcome disadvantage and reach their potential. Through arts, sport, music, mentoring, skills building, trips and more, we help raise aspirations and increase opportunities.

RPT has helped me to build character and has taught me about qualities that apply to life in general. RPT is unique; it's like a family'. Danny, 12, from Football Academy

Our services run 6 days per week, up to 10 hours per day, for 45 weeks a year. In the last 12 months, we supported more than 1,300 children, young people and isolated mums.

Our programmes are free to ensure we're supporting the most at-risk children and young people. We are more than 85% funded by the community through donations and fundraising events. Our events account for 50% of our fundraised income, and all of our 2020 events were postponed, downsized or cancelled due to Covid-19.

Sometimes it's hard being a teenager; people forget that. But the team at [RPT] get it. They've supported me through some really tough times when people just didn't get me. When I don't have anyone to talk to, I know I can go to RPT and they'll listen. It's like a second home for me.' Jenna, 16, from Youth Club

At the start of the pandemic, we quickly adapted our programmes to remote delivery to ensure that no one was left without support at one of the most distressing times in modern history. The RPT has returned to face-to-face delivery for programmes that are safe to do so and thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we are now able to look ahead to the future and focus on what matters most: continuing to develop our services to support those in our community who need it.

The impact of the pandemic on the children and young people that we work with will continue long into the future, which is why we are determined to ensure that we build back stronger and offer the best possible support to achieve long-term outcomes.We are grateful for donations of all sizes.
