The Tower Hamlets Youth Sport Foundation has combined this funding with that from other schools, School Games Organiser funding, other sports funding and a significant amount of income accumulated through private sector fundraising, to help schools make the most effective and efficient use of the allocation. The use of this funding considers national/Government guidance on the funding’s usage, local priorities and the school’s specific needs.


Tower Hamlets is an area that is historically high in deprivation, population churn and immigrant families new to the UK and is likely to require ongoing investment in PE and Sport through which, if continued, equitable integration is to be realised. THYSF supports schools to sustain provision and initiatives through the following measures:
  • Incorporating outcomes for Primary Schools into Borough Sports Strategy and Planning
  • Diversifying income streams and mainstreaming projects
  • Coordinating and influencing National Governing Body, County Sport Partnership, Youth Sport Trust and other sports organisations’ investment in Tower Hamlets
  • Building a local workforce through the professional development of school staff and a strong sports leadership programme for young people
  • Developing a fit for purpose sporting infrastructure that strengthens links with key clubs in the region who grow to become key stakeholders in Tower Hamlets school sport
