Case study: RDF-PPS Advancement Programme
PPS supports the delivery of Right Development Foundation – a basketball programme based in Barking – the fifth most deprived local authority in England. RDF does amazing work to engage the local community and provide an environment that allows its participants to feel safe and thrive.
PPS supports eight of its most talented but in need young people by funding their membership costs for the year. Those we support have an average age of 16, and there is a 6:4 male:female split.
This support is essential to keep these young people involved and active. It eases the pressure for their families and supports RDF with additional income they wouldn’t have received otherwise. Most importantly, it keeps eight young people involved and active to allow them to get the best out of themselves through sport.

“PPS has continued to make a great impact within the community we are working in. PPS has become recognised within RDF for their generous support to our young people and coaches, especially in a time of great need. Members training fees are being supported by PPS and additional individual support is being offered to players who are taking a step further on their basketball journey. The support PPS has provided has given parents a relief of financial burden, and has given players an opportunity to focus primarily on their training and development”
