Sporting Futures deliver bespoke employability programmes across Derbyshire for young people aged 16-25 who are not in employment, education or training.

Currently we are running the Toyota Road to Success project in Derby and South Derbyshire through sponsorship from the Toyota Manufacturing UK Charitable Trust.  This grant allows us to run 2 projects annually, helping up to 20 young people back into a positive avenue following previous issues they may have had which have left them dislocated from the conventional system.

Road to Success is a hands-on approach to learning employability and life skills, veering away from traditional, classroom-based instruction. We use sport and physical activity to create opportunity, increase confidence and provide real like experience for our participants to take into the workplace and beyond.

Here's a snapshot of our most recent project in South Derbyshire!
