The Fighting Chance is a Community Interest Company founded in 2015. 

We provide unique and effective employability programmes using sport and boxing training to get people back into work. We engage with clients from all sectors but particularly focus on those people with complex support needs who may have multiple barriers to finding work.

Our mission is to support those most disadvantaged in the labour market through motivation, sport and employability. 

We draw on the benefits of boxing training to engage and inspire while offering personalised support that change lives.

Our team has the skills, knowledge and experience to deliver. We’ve worked together over the past three years to build, launch, and grow the organisation.

Our record speaks for itself!

The Fighting Chance in action

I’ve referred a number of clients to The Fighting Chance in my role at the military charity, Veterans Aid, and all of the feedback I’ve received about the course has been fantastic.

Being ex-squaddies, the parallels my lads have drawn between the military and the boxing world are powerful – the discipline, the comradery within the group, the demanding fitness regime incorporated into their weekly structure.

As a result of completing the programme we’ve seen clients go on into paid work, voluntary work placements, and college courses. But just as significantly are the “soft outcomes” from which The Fighting Chance has been the catalyst; the improvement in individuals’ mental health, confidence and self esteem, in motivation to get back into employment, or even to get back into recovery from addiction issues.

I’d highly recommend this programme to anyone currently out of work who is looking for some extra support.
