Tessa Jowell Social and Environmental Impact Award
Rebels Crew takes the inspiration of INEOS TEAM UK’s challenge to win the America’s Cup into Britain’s cities, through the Rebels Crew sailing initiative.
Launched in 2019, the national initiative worked with 12 Flagship watersports centres and 60 partner schools; serving some of the most deprived areas in the country.
The programme provides deserving young people with life changing sailing opportunities close to where they live and go to school with the aim of inspiring them about their futures and helping them to develop the resilience to succeed.
During school time, Rebels Crew sailors complete RYA sailing qualifications and report improved “skills for life” which have a positive impact on behaviour and attitudes to learning when back in school.
INEOS Rebels Crew will continue to grow over the next three years to reach more and more young people.
British Olympic Foundation & British Paralympic Association
Get set is the British Olympic Foundation (BOF) and British Paralympic Association (BPA)’s youth engagement programme, for young people aged 5-19. It serves to help deliver the respective visions of BOA and BPA; to ‘unite and inspire a nation through the power of sport’ and ‘through sport to inspire a better world for disabled people’.
Underpinning every activity and resource is the teaching of the Olympic Values (friendship, respect, excellence) and Paralympic Values (determination, inspiration, courage, and equality). Get Set uses the power and inspiration of sport to support young people across the UK in becoming active citizens within their communities, and to live healthy, physically active lives. It has integrated the ethos of the Games into the GB schools landscape, increasing young people’s physical activity, and equipping them with the tools they need to set and achieve their goals.
Football Beyond Borders
Football Beyond Borders (FBB) is an education charity which was set up in 2014 to tackle school exclusions.
We exist to change the lives of young people from low income backgrounds. There are thousands of young people who are passionate about football but are not fulfilling their potential at school. We do this by providing long-term, intensive support, built around relationships and young people’s passions, in the classroom and beyond.
Our FBB Schools programme now works with over 1,000 young people each year across the UK.
Today’s young generation is the least active in history, however we know that active kids are healthier, happier and more successful. They perform better in their classrooms, communities and future careers.
Currently only one in five kids in the UK get the recommended level of physical activity each day, which is why Nike has created Active School Hero to celebrate the achievements of the heroes working in primary schools across London to inspire Generation Active.
By championing these heroes, Nike is inspiring school communities to get even more kids moving and transforming Generation Inactive into Generation Active. We wanted to elevate the work that these heroes do and support them to not only continue to get kids moving but to also encourage other staff members to do the same.

‘Parasport Powered by Toyota’ is the new home for grassroots accessible sport and activity in the UK. Developed by ParalympicsGB and Toyota in response to rising levels of inactivity within the disabled community, Parasport makes it easier for disabled people to get active by addressing the physical, logistical, and psychological barriers which prevent people from getting and staying active.
The Parasport Hub is a fun and vibrant community for players, parents and coaches to share their experiences and find useful hints, tips and information on what’s happening locally. At its heart is the ‘Parasport Activity Finder’ which, by leveraging open data and relationships with UK sporting bodies, now has more than 2,300 local opportunities listed - all searchable by location, age, activity type and impairment.
Toyota’s commitment to Parasport showcases how it is actively making ‘movement better for everyone’ as it evolves from an automotive to a mobility company.
