Supporting young people to forge brighter futures

3Pillars Project is a charity that runs interventions and preventions, through sport-based mentoring programmes for young people in custody, on post-release and those in and around the criminal justice system. We work across London and the South East, in prisons, young offenders’ institutes (YOIs) and in the community, working in partnership with Pupil Referral Units and Youth Offending Teams.

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.

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.
