Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation
In its beautiful and unique setting, the Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation uses the power of cricket and other sports, outdoor recreation and history to inspire and enhance the education, health and development of disadvantaged young people. Our fully inclusive programmes combine sport, education and well-being to have a lasting, positive impact on the lives of young people from local and inner-city mainstream and special schools.
The Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation was formed and registered as a charity in 1986. Over the years we have focused strongly on the development and education of children and young people (mainly aged between 7-19 years) with a special emphasis on the disadvantaged and those deprived of opportunity. Our London Schools Community Project supports the social, emotional and physical development of disadvantaged children from London inner city schools. Our SEND Project provides sports, learning and social experiences, adapted to meet the needs of children with special educational needs and disabilities. Last year our inclusive programmes supported the health, education and emotional wellbeing of 1200 disadvantaged young people.
The Foundation is based at Arundel Castle Cricket Ground, set within the beautiful surroundings of the Sussex countryside. We are located between the South Coast and South Downs National Park in an area famous for its history, beautiful green hills and scenic landscape. Our projects enable disadvantaged young people to participate in sports, education and recreation within a world-famous cricket ground, a historic medieval castle and a vibrant Sussex beach. Our unique setting enriches our educational programmes, providing a perfect environment for inspiration and escape; leaving a lasting and powerful impression on the young people who visit us.
