Community on Solid Ground is an innovative registered UK Charity that uses sports, physical activity, leadership skills, social activities and mentoring to engage and develop the capabilities of children and young people. Community on Solid Ground strives to engage with them to improve their life opportunities, personal development, health and wellbeing.

The team includes experienced and professional individuals with vast knowledge and understanding of the challenges that young people from diverse communities face on a daily basis. We are passionate about ensuring young people are able to develop and achieve their full potential and fulfil some of their dreams and aspirations.

Having the organisation under firm leadership has enabled us to thrive and maintain services. We recognise that working in partnership contributes to our success and makes a massive difference in the lives of young people and their communities.

We will continue to broaden our horizon and develop new initiatives and partnerships to inspire future generations.
