IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT... Every year, 450 million people worldwide experience mental health problems, and the discrimination that comes with them. The charity helps to make sure they get the support and empathy they need.
ENSURE PEOPLE HAVE A SAFE PLACE TO BE... 1 in 5 people around the world don’t have adequate shelter. Day by day, person by person Sport Relief is working to ensure people have a safe place to call home.
HELP CHILDREN TO SURVIVE AND THRIVE... Every year, millions of children
die before their fifth birthday, or grow up in poverty and neglect. So Sport Relief helps child after child survive and grow.
REDUCE FEAR, VIOLENCE AND DISCRIMINATION... The idea that some of us are worth less because of our gender leads to real violence, abuse and discrimination. The charity works for a world with less judgement and fear where people can take control of their lives.
