The charity’s partners and funders include GlaxoSmithKline, adidas, Barclaycard, The Mayor of London, the Host Olympic Boroughs, Sport England, Comic Relief, British Cycling and other National Governing Bodies.
Access Sport’s Club Development Programme has been awarded LOCOG’s Inspire Mark and Ambassadors include Bradley Wiggins, Rebecca Romero, James Cracknell, Greg Searle, Rachel Yankey, John Barnes, and David James. More information can be found at www.accesssport.org.uk/our-projects.
