SPORTING CHANCES with focus on the GRT community (see flyer below)

At Sporting Chances (SC) we understand that Gypsy, Roma, Traveller children can experience gaps in their education in both nomadic and settled communities that can lead to feelings of exclusion from wider society. It is the right of every child to have an education that is of a high quality. We empower young people to unlock and achieve their full aspirational potential within a safe and culturally sensitive environment.
