Solidarity Sports’ Befriending Programme focuses on providing children with ways to explore their interests and engage in new activities. Befriending enables children to increase their social, emotional and relational skills. During regular outings, they spend one on one time with adults who are consistent and reliable role models.
Who are Solidarity Sports?
Solidarity Sports is a small charity that creates a safe and loving environment where happy memories can flourish. We work with vulnerable children who live in central London.

What is befriending?
A mentor is matched to a child.
Every week, for a period of at least 6 months, the mentor takes the child “out and about” in London for 2 to 3 hours.
Outings vary a great deal according to the child’s interests: these include sports, museums, parks, art & craft, London landmarks etc.
Please make sure you speak to your DofE leader before starting this activity so they can check its fits the requiremnts of the volunteering section.
