News / About us
2nd Chance Group is an award-winning social enterprise that has built, and supported a portfolio of programmes that all use the power of sport to repair broken lives and build a stronger future for young people.
We have operated in three sectors and provided support for people, programmes and organisations across the UK and beyond.
At 2nd Chance, our values represent the way we do business and underpin our decision-making across all of our programmes:
– Quality & Performance: ‘Great people, great business’
– Ambition & Inspiration: ‘Our ambition is to inspire’
– Trust & Integrity: ‘The right thing, the right way’
– Lifelong Change: ‘We only succeed when you do’
At 2nd Chance, we are committed to employing people with lived experience and along with evidence from the World Health Organisation, we know that many children grow up as victims of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) such as abuse, neglect or dysfunctional home environments.
The evidence also tells us that children who are subject to ACEs are more likely to underperform academically; binge drink; smoke; be involved in violence; use heroin or crack, and be incarcerated.
Research also informs us that people who experienced ACEs tend to raise their own children in an environment where ACEs are more common.
