“The mentoring you [Sport 4 Life UK] have given some of our most vulnerable pupils has had a positive impact on their own and their families lives. You have given invaluble support to our young people and helped them face some very difficult situations and emotions they are experiencing.

Services like Sport 4 Life have given our young people the opportunity to ‘off load’ their worries to a trained mentor who listens, advises and most importantly support them – this service is invaluable to us as a school.”
