Who we are
The Mintridge Foundation is a registered charity that wants every young person to have a positive relationship with sport.
In a world of superficial social media presences, increasing sedentary lifestyles, a mental health epidemic and the long reaching impact of Covid-19, young people need to see a greater variety of sporting role models. In fact, young people need the Mintridge Foundation more than ever.
In sport, there are great expectations around role models, and we see this as an incredible opportunity to make positive outcomes.
The Mintridge Foundation harnesses the unique platform of sporting role models far beyond their medals.
Olympians, Paralympians and other sports stars (Mintridge Ambassadors) deliver holistic sports provision in schools, clubs and colleges across the UK for young people from all walks of life, of all abilities, and of all physical capabilities.
