PERFORMANCE PLUS – MADE THROUGH SPORT

The mission of PPS is to get the best out of young people through sport. We are committed to supporting young sportspeople with the right attitude, creating opportunities for those who wouldn’t have had the chance otherwise. We believe in the power of sport, and the positive impact it can have.

Our vision is to find and support the most deserving and in need young people, and develop the most impactful programmes to make a difference through sport and eventually influence a more socially mobile society.

What we do

We support aspiring sportspeople who are looking to advance to elite level by providing more access to the training, competition & the essentials needed to level the playing field.


And we create career pathways by increasing educational & training opportunities to make young people more employable.

Who we target

  • Young people with a positive attitude and winning mindset but limited opportunities, and inspiring delivery partners from the most deprived areas.

  • Marginalised youths

  • Aspiring athletes with limited opportunities

  • Young people who have suffered hardship and are searching for another chance

  • Low socio-economic groups

  • Areas of high deprivation

How we reach them

  • We work with trusted delivery partners (such as sports clubs/academies, community centres, coaching providers) in the most deprived areas of London to deliver programmes to groups.

  • We then rely on coach recommendation to offer further support to the most deserving and in need young people

  • We also act on referrals from respected partnering organisations (such as StreetGames and Centrepoint) to offer individual support

Our Social Impact Goals and Outcomes

For all of our programmes we are reducing the financial and support barriers

involved in participation and progression through sport.

Philosophy and Values

We believe in the power of sport, and the positive impact it can have

Performance

We support young sportspeople with the right attitude; where they have a performance mindset who are willing and able.

We support those who want to do more and want to be better.

We enable progress by offering opportunities and individual support programmes to the most deserving.

Plus

We support, rather than directly fund (we are not just a funding body).

Mentorship is the tool we use to get the best out of the young sportspeople that we support.

PPS offers a structure where support is offered as a pathway across three target areas.

Success and progress within this structure is relative, not just of the highest level.

Sport

Sport is the tool we use to get the best out of young sportspeople.

To have fun and make friends for life through sport.

PPS STORY

PPS was born in November 2016, by a group of people ambitious and driven to get the best out of young sportspeople.

We started by offering individual support programmes to young performance tennis players.  In September 2018, and registered as an official charity, we launched a growth strategy to build programmes and support in three target areas and across different sports.  Seeking to find potential and “polish the diamond”!

As a family-run charity we are driven to give a sporting opportunity to young people, level the playing field and give the chance to engage in sport and perform to their best.
