A special visit from Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to Netball 4 Change

This year TCF were fortunate enough to be part of Comic Relief’s Sport Relief campaign. Our Netball 4 Change programme in London, funded by Comic Relief, received a special visit from The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, who got to see first-hand the dynamic sport for social change coaches at TCF and the impact on the girls and young women of the programme.

Netball 4 Change uses the game of Netball to help young women stay safe on social media through games linked to using social media positively and drills that raise awareness of the dangers of social media. While engaging in the session, The Mayor of London said:

“Programmes like Netball 4 Change are an absolute must. It’s incredibly important we educate our young people in how to use social media safely. Sport always has been and always will be a brilliant tool for developing community cohesion and I am a firm believer in the importance of grassroots sport and its ability to bring people and ideas together.

During the visit The Mayor of London launched a new fund in partnership with Comic Relief called ‘London Together’. The fund will invest in projects that use sport to improve social integration across London. It is in line with The Mayor of London’s ambition to make London the most active and socially integrated city in the world.

We’d like to thank the brilliant team at Comic Relief for selecting Netball 4 Change for a VIP visit, the great supporters from Quiet Ltd and our brilliant partner in the programme Naomi Sesay, Youth Engagement and Diversity Specialist of the Media Trust.
