As a young charity, Boxing Futures has been hit hard by the current pandemic. Due to social distancing and financial pressures we have had to temporarily suspend our services, at a time when disadvantaged young people need us more than ever. But we’re not throwing in the towel. With your help we hope to start running our services online as soon as possible, because we know physical and mental wellbeing has never been more important.

Boxing Futures believes in the potential of every young person, even when they don’t believe in it themselves. We know that non-contact boxing – such as Boxercise training – is one of the most effective ways to engage some of the most disadvantaged young people in our communities.
By empowering them through sport, we help young people develop their physical and mental wellbeing and build the confidence they need to go after their dreams. With your support we can reach even more young people who really need someone in their corner.
Give now to fight for better lives.
From our projects in Peterborough and London, Boxing Futures engages with young people, aged 16-25 years who face social disadvantage. This means that compared to their peers they are unable to access opportunities to improve their lives due to poverty, educational disadvantage, offending history or are described as NEET (not in employment, education or training).
We exist to have an immediate and positive impact by improving physical and mental well-being, increasing confidence as well as the ability to develop positive relationships. We believe these outcomes, together with support from our staff and partners will empower young people to access opportunities to employment, education, training or volunteering.LEARN MORE >>
