Who are we? 

KEEN London is the only charity in London providing one-to-one support during free sports and activity sessions for children with additional needs or disabilities aged 5-11.

We believe no child should miss out on the benefits of sports and physical activity. With the support of our amazing volunteers, our weekly sessions give our athletes the chance to:

  • play games
  • make friends and
  • most importantly, have fun!

What do we do? 

At our sessions, each athlete is paired with a trained volunteer coach for individual support. This means they benefit from one-to-one attention and care.

It also means parents/carers can leave their children in a secure and safe environment.

For families, volunteers, supporters and athletes, this means the KEEN family is one of a kind;

  • welcoming
  • safe
  • supportive
  • rewarding and
  • fun

Please note: We do not operate a drop in service, all athletes must be registered.

Where are KEEN sessions held? 

Sessions take place at The Petchey Academy, Shacklewell Lane, Hackney, London, E8 2EY. 

All sessions are during term time. 

Please contact us to find out more.
