Foundation Member – Personal Best Foundation

Changing young people’s lives through Athletics.

Personal Best Foundation is an independent registered charity established by England Athletics to help disadvantaged children and young people achieve their personal best on the track, at school and in life.

Everyone has a personal best. But inequality and poverty put it out of reach for some children and young people.  

Our programmes open the door to opportunities and put a world of possibilities at the feet of the most disadvantaged children and young people in England. But we don’t do it alone. 

We bring together our athletics community, community organisations and partners to engage, inspire and help children and young people achieve more than they thought possible through athletics and in life. Together, we identify obstacles, tear down barriers and level the playing field to make athletics more accessible to everyone.    

Learning to run, jump and throw is the foundation for a lifetime of activity and better wellbeing. From playground to podium, irrespective of size, shape, disability, cultural or social background, there’s a place for everyone in athletics. And no matter track, field or road, the positive effects are proven. Better mental, physical and emotional wellbeing put achieving our personal best in reach.

By working together, we will change the lives of young people.
