The ‘Sporting Families’ Project – Funded Learning Courses for London Sports Clubs

Kensington and Chelsea College are proud to be supporting the ‘Sporting Families’ project, a new London-centred project that helps sports clubs educate their young people and adults about positive mental and physical well-being.

The ‘Sporting Families’ initiative provides sports clubs across London with the opportunity to access funded distance learning courses in areas such as mental health, exercise, and autism – at no cost whatsoever!

The project gives back to those parents, carers, and volunteers who support our young people week in, week out, as they participate in local sporting activities, by providing them with access to funded training.

This project is delivered by The Skills Network, one of the college’s sub-contracted distance learning providers.

Sports clubs of all sizes can now access fully funded distance courses in:

  • Mental health (for both children and adults)
  • Healthy eating
  • Inclusion and diversity
  • Autism
  • Exercise and fitness.

So that the whole club can benefit, all clubs will also receive resource packs, auto-marked short courses, and newsletters at no cost!

Each club will nominate five (adult) champions, who will each study a funded online learning course and then share what they have learnt to educate the other members of the club in key areas of well-being.

This is a brilliant opportunity for any club to help promote positive well-being and enable their young people to flourish – a project that is truly for Londoners, funded by Londoners.
