The young people and communities Fight for Peace works with has been hit hard by the cost of living crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic. Families with reduced finances are experiencing food and fuel poverty.
Young people have become more socially isolated, and this has damaged their mental health. We are raising funds so that young people continue to thrive, despite the problems that exist across the country.
We want to raise £25,000 to fund coaches and support staff to deliver sports and personal development sessions to more young people. The funding will also support our young people to reach their potential through providing leadership, training and personal development opportunities to learn new skills and develop individual areas of expertise.
Your support will cover the coaching, support staff and running costs of 200 hours of coaching time at our Academy, which will benefit hundreds of young people in Newham in 2023.
The money raised will also pay for training fees to support our young coaches and staff to further progress by achieving higher coaching or professional qualifications. This will mean that in 2023 they can support more young people in Newham to reach their own personal goals.
INSPIRING YOUNG PEOPLE TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL
At Fight for Peace we support young people aged 7 to 25 to thrive by capitalising on their talent, personalities and potential.
We achieve this by providing young people aged 7 to 25 access to sporting opportunities, focused support and a safe environment.
Fight for Peace has been providing sporting opportunities combined with support, mentoring and aspirational raising opportunities since 2007. Over the past 15 years, our organisation has positively impacted thousands of young lives.

THE POWER OF COMBAT SPORTS
Combat sports are a powerful element in realising the potential of young people through the valuable lessons and life skills they develop, the mindset and resilience they teach, and the strong relationships they allow young people to build with coaches, who at Fight for Peace transcend the roles of mentors, instructors and role models.
Your support can help us provide these benefits to more young people from across Newham and beyond in 2023!
