About Us

Established in 2002, Greenhouse Sports charity is leading the fight for a future where young people are supported and empowered, whatever their challenges, through sport. We coach and mentor young people from deprived backgrounds because the crisis for children living in deprivation is real and it is urgent. Children from the poorest families are 3 times more likely to not participate in any extra-curricular activities compared to those from wealthier families and they lack many opportunities that are available to their wealthier peers.

We have an exciting opportunity to join a mission driven Sport for Development charity that makes a real difference. We are also a great place to work and are proud to be a winner of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work awards for 2024, in the medium category.

You will also be required to deliver half term and holiday camps during the school holidays.
