Launched in 2020 thanks to a record £1m grant from the London Marathon Foundation, Levelling the Playing Field uses the power
of sport and physical activity to engage and improve health and life conditions for ethnically diverse children who are more likely to enter, or are already involved with, the Criminal Justice System.
Levelling the Playing Field augments its partners’ impact by fostering multi-agency partnerships, offering extensive staff training including mentoring qualifications, sourcing and distributing funding (including over half a million pounds through multiple fundingstreams) and raising their profile through case studies and regional and national awards events.
