BIGKID Foundation exists to help young people in South London at risk of social exclusion. We do this by reaching out and encouraging them to fulfil their potential, changing the world one kid at a time. We run programmes under the three main banners of sports engagement, mentoring and leadership to encourage those that are hardest to reach to engage in more positive activities.
We operate in the London Borough of Lambeth, which is ranked the 14th most deprived in England. The issues faced by young people in Lambeth are deeply entrenched. The problems associated with low-income households are only made worse by the prevalent gang culture.
As a result, the young people we work with are affected by a wide range of related issues including poor health, stress, risk of exclusion from school and risk of falling into the criminal justice system.
