Boxing Futures is a dynamic charity which works to improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing of disadvantaged young people. We empower young people by building positive relationships, developing core soft skills and increasing confidence and motivation.
Our proven, positive impact provides a springboard to re-engage with education, volunteering and employment opportunities.
We exist to remove barriers to young people living full and happy lives.
Boxing Futures exists to remove the barriers to young people living full and happy lives.
When young people become excluded and disconnected from their communities it can cause a downward spiral of isolation and loneliness which is hard to get out of without the right support.
There is a gap between young adults who have access to opportunities in life and those who don’t. This is compounded in many areas of life including vocational training and routes to employment.
Isolation and inequality can take a huge toll on people’s mental health and they are often disempowered to access the resources and support they need to develop resilience and effective coping strategies.
Our mission is to improve the life chances of socially and economically disadvantaged people and those at risk of involvement in criminality through non-contact boxing, with a particular focus on enhancing individuals’ physical health and mental wellbeing and positively reconnecting them into their communities.
To combat loneliness and build relationships amongst socially isolated individuals.
To improve physical & mental health fitness via accessible, non-contact boxing & sport programmes.
To increase positive social connectedness and community involvement.
To strengthening personal autonomy, resilience, and self-belief.
To improve educational outcomes through alternative education provision.
With your support, this is the difference we’re making in young people’s lives.

Team Boxing Futures
Our leadership team and our coaches are committed to fighting for young people’s futures.
Founder & CEO
Anthony York founded Boxing Futures in 2013, to provide an alternative outlet to young people involved, or at risk of becoming involved, in the youth justice system. He believes improving physical and mental wellbeing improves young people’s ability to address obstacles they face in life and reduce anti-social behaviour.
Director of Operations
With twenty years’ third sector experience, principally in youth focused provisions, Shelly is practiced in contract implementation, management and motivation of a diverse range of services. She is a strong advocate of continuous improvement, development and achieving needs-led delivery that is genuinely impactful.
Head of Fundraising
Working alongside his colleagues Adam has ensured the charity has been able to successfully diversify funding streams over the last 3 years. This has led to Boxing Futures being able to sustain and develop existing programmes, whilst supporting the ever-growing number of young people the charity works with on a yearly basis.
