Communities

Ensuring that wherever you come from, kit isn't the barrier between you and finding your community

Holding back a desire

In times of austerity funding across the board gets cut. One of the areas hit are local community projects, with sport programmes being a key one for young people. These projects not only help in the physical and mental well being of those participating, but it also helps reduce anti social behaviour, provides a root for self development and brings communities together.

A helping hand

We work in partnership with grass roots sport projects to ensure they have the kit they need to enable them to continue to run initiatives that not only help keep young people off the streets, but also provide them with a root out of their current situation using sport as the ladder.

United through sport

A community project that stands out for Kit Us Out took place in Argentina, where we worked with the fantastic United Through Sport project. Although last minute, our Founder was attending a business conference in Buenos Aires and just before leaving, he decided to look for a project the charity could support locally with kit.

United through sport

After a quick online search, United Through Sport appeared. The body does amazing work on the ground in Buenos Aires, delivering structured sports projects to disadvantaged communities. And so Alex reached out to the organisation and heard back almost immediately...

United through sport

With kit packed up shortly thereafter and ready to donate (over 100kgs - huge thanks to British Airways!), Alex set off for Argentina. On the ground there, he spent a day observing the amazing work United Through Sport does first hand. As a result, the donated kit (ranging from rugby balls and footballs to sport tops and running shorts) have been distributed across three amazing community projects.
