About Us

Access Sport is a national charity with a vision that no one should be excluded from the transformational benefits of community sport. We are on a mission to make inclusion the norm in community sport by tackling the access barriers faced by disadvantaged and disabled young people. We do this by training, equipping, and supporting community sports clubs, organisations, and volunteers to provide inclusive programmes, unleashing their potential to transform the lives of underserved young people in their local communities.

This work is either place based (Changing Places) or sport focussed (Changing Sports). All the clubs we support are invited to join our Inclusive Club Network. In 2022/23 Access Sport engaged over 11,000 disadvantaged and disabled young people, with a strong representation from ethnically diverse communities, girls, and previously less active young people. A number of videos showcasing our work can be found on our YouTube channel. These include a recent multi-sport festival in Bristol, a new bike park in Stockwood and our Flyerz Hockey programme activity during Covid.

About the Role

Access Sport is looking for a new Community Coordinator within our growing Changing Places team. This is an exciting opportunity to support the growth of our work across Greater London and deliver on our ambitious growth strategy, with a strong focus on making sport more inclusive and accessible for disabled children and young people in deprived communities. The post holder will support, train and equip community clubs to offer inclusive opportunities. This will include training and upskilling clubs and supporting them through their club development journey, organising taster sessions and events, promoting opportunities to new participants and connecting with the local communities and partners. Community sport has many benefits for disadvantaged and disabled young people including improving their physical and mental wellbeing, life skills and prospects, sense of belonging and community engagement. Yet less than half of children and young people in London are meeting the Chief Medical Officer’s recommended levels of physical activity.
