The Fighting Chance programme is designed to get those furthest from the labour market back into work through boxing training. The programme utilises the core principles of boxing: discipline, teamwork, self-control, self-respect and gets participants engaged and motivated. It’s also great fun!


A study conducted by the Walker Research Group showed boxing training can be used as a vehicle to influence behavioural change. Boxing is a sport that teaches values and skills such as discipline, mental strength, control and the ability to take personal responsibility.  These are all skills that can be used to overcome social and individual problems.


Employability coaches are on hand during training and support participants through one-to-ones, and a full analysis of their needs. Beyond the physical training element of the programme bespoke support is available on a one-to-one basis. This ensures participants are provided with a personalised approach to their employment needs.

Our support includes:

  • Providing focussed employability advice tailored to your needs
  • Specialist information and advice to prepare you for finding work
  • Full assessment of personal development, preferred employment outcomes, and individual skills and aspirations


The Fighting Chance is very proud of the progress achieved by the people who have completed our programmes.

Please take time to look at some of our Case Studies which tells the story of their success.

The Fighting Chance is 3 years old!
