Support page thumb

Beyond Sport supports initiatives, generates ideas and builds partnerships that purposefully use sport to address the world’s most pressing social issues. Using a collective and holistic approach, theglobal foundation leverages a diverse network of sport for social change innovators, progressive organisations and expertise built up over more than a decade to stimulate action in areas of critical importance for humanity.

The sale of this experience will support Beyond Sport’s Sport Together Fund. The Sport Together Fund, delivered by Beyond Sport in partnership with the United Nations High Council on Refugees (UNHCR), leverages the platform of sport to support sport-based development organisations around the world that step up to the challenge when the communities they serve face conflict, harm and insecurity.

As the world responds to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Fund's first initiative will provide directsupport to community organisations that are using sport to provide vital resources to Ukrainians during and coming out of the crisis. Support will be given through cash grants and capacity building tools based on the specific needs of the communities guided by an expert advisory group encompassing specialists in trauma and health, conflict resolution, youth sports and social and community cohesion.

From immediate response to longer term recovery and reconstruction, resources will be distributed to vetted community organisations that are helping Ukrainians, especially children, survive, overcome their trauma and rebuild their lives.
