London Sports Trust
The London Sports Trust started in 1999 through the support of David Robins at John Lyons Charity with the goal of supporting talented sports stars in financial need through bursaries and educational guidance. The Trust evolved from the Sports Scholarship Scheme in Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster whose first recipient was Olympic Gold medallist and Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins.
Today the Trust delivers a range of programmes whose goal is to help young Londoners through sport using a tailored mentoring programme. We provide training and lifeskills that improve confidence and knowledge that increase the chance of employment.
Our schools and nurseries programme gives young apprentices the opportunity gain valuable work experience with ongoing support and guidance.
The London Sports Trust is a charity dedicated to helping young Londoners through sport. We work with local partners, schools and communities to help disadvantaged children and young people fulfil their potential. Our mentoring and training programmes give the confidence, skills and knowledge to achieve in all aspects of life.
We deliver structured sports sessions in schools, nurseries and across the local community led by experienced coaches. Click here for more information. The Trust is always scouting for new partners and volunteers to help us inspire a young Londoner every day.
