Supporting young people to forge brighter futures

3Pillars Project empowers young people to forge brighter futures

Our vision is to create the nation’s leading sports-based mentoring programme for young people in custody and those recently released from prison. 


We are a charity that uses sports-based mentoring programmes to support young adults and children in custody, equipping them through mentoring, training, employment and education.


Our project equips participants with a toolkit, a toolkit that enables reintegration into the community and prevents a return to custody. 3Pillars believe that nurturing young leaders with lived experience of the criminal justice system can create positive change within local communities and have a positive impact on other young people.


We build long term trust based relationships with participants, providing stability and longterm engagement within the 3Pillars sporting community. We work with a range of partners across London, the South East, and the Midlands. All 3Pillars Project apprentices become part of our community.


Sport as a gateway to build trust-based, long-term relationships with vulnerable young people.


Deliver mentoring and provide positive role models using a trauma-aware approach.


Provide long-term support, empowering participants to make positive contributions to society.

Our story

Our Work

As a sports-based charity, we use a combination of mentoring and rugby to engage young people aged 15-25 in prison, YOIs, PRUs and in the community. We work to prevent young people being pulled into crime and gangs. 


Our programmes enable young people in custody and in the community to realise their potential to make a positive contribution to society in the future, regardless of their past.
