About Us

​Established in 2002, Greenhouse Sports charity is leading the fight for a future where young people are supported and empowered, whatever their challenges, through sport. We coach and mentor young people from deprived backgrounds because the crisis for children living in deprivation is real and it is urgent.

Our magic is the Greenhouse coach, sports coach, trained mentor and role-model combined. Over the last 2 decades these coaches have worked with more than 50,000 secondary school children in London to help them fulfil their potential. We run extracurricular breakfast, lunch and after-school clubs at mainstream and special educational needs schools.

In 2020 we expanded our delivery beyond London for the first time, launching a programme of work to support children earlier in their lives at primary school. This expansion of services is critical to meeting the needs of young people growing up in poverty today, and we are committed to continue expanding these services in the years to come.

You will also be required to deliver half term and holiday camps during the school holidays.

As a coach you will also work closely with the Impact Team to collect high-quality data to demonstrate the effectiveness of what we do and to quantify the difference we make to our young people. Data is collected at designated times throughout the year and includes; case studies, questionnaires, skills and fitness testing.
