Through the scheme athletes receive vital backing, including financial assistance and unrestricted admission to Active Lambeth leisure centres.

The programme targets athletes competing at County level or higher in sports recognised by Sport England. By providing crucial support and resources, Active Lambeth aims to nurture the next generation of sports stars within the borough.
