Greenhouse Sports believes in the power of sport to raise the aspirations of young people and help them reach their full potential. The London-based sport for development charity delivers high-quality sport programmes in schools that give young people the opportunity to develop transferable life skills and access valuable coaching and mentorship. Since 2002, over 40,000 young people have participated on Greenhouse Sports programmes.
The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust provided a grant to assist in the purchase and redevelopment of the charity’s new state-of-the-art sports centre project, transforming a deconsecrated church in Marylebone. Completed in May 2018, and with support from the Trust, the new Greenhouse Centre provides a safe and welcoming space for young people from the local area and beyond to access the same high-quality coaching and mentoring on which the charity has built its success.
