Only 2 days to go until the Westminster Volunteering & Work Experience Fair! Below you can find more details about one of the charities that will be at the fair: the London Basketball Association!

London Basketball Association is a registered charity, established in July 2012. They are a small but intensely committed organisation, built up and employing directly from the very communities within which they work. They operate within the ‘sport for development’ sector and aim to bring positive social change in areas such as health and wellbeing, substance misuse and employment, through the powerful medium of sport, and basketball specifically.

Their vision is that through the sport of basketball, they will benefit unite thousands of beneficiaries from disadvantaged and deprived communities and will attribute to cutting costs to society. They are working to develop a high quality infrastructure allowing basketball to grow efficiently and to become accessible and affordable to all.

The LBA’s mission is to:
  1. Improve live’s through encouraging and facilitating a healthier life style
  2. Increase employment in deprived and disadvantaged communities through vocational training and work experience
  3. Help cut social costs by tackling prevalent issues such as health and wellbeing, obesity and crime.
Among many other awards, they have attained the ‘Active Westminster Club Mark’ and ‘London Youth Gold Mark’, two prestigious seals of approval for our work within our communities. They also were named ‘Community Group of the Year’ at the Pride of Brent awards in 2018.
