The GLL Sport Foundation was launched in 2008 with the support of Sally Gunnell OBE who became the Foundation’s Patron.
Since its inception the Foundation has provided over 10,600 athlete award bursaries totalling over £6.1 million of support.
As a leading Charitable Social Enterprise, GLL are proud to be able to make this positive impact to our communities through the Foundation.
The GLL Sport Foundation is an athlete focused programme, in light of this they look to provide multiple benefits to supported athletes through training support and wider sporting areas.
Athlete benefits include Training Membership, Physiotherapy, Sports Science and Coaching and Employment that athletes can access to support their sport performance and wider life opportunities. An athlete shop is also available where athletes are able to purchase GLL Sport Foundation branded training kit.
The focus of these programmes is to further support athlete performance levels.
Almost 100 young atheltes have received vital funding and support from the GLL Sport Foundation in Lambeth in 2017 so far.
This funding will play a key role in these athletes training and competitive careers.
18 of these athletes are linked to Streatham Ice and Leisure Centre and ice sports including figure skating, Ice Dance and Ice Hockey.
