SkyWay is a charity supporting over 1,500 vulnerable young people.

The charity’s work includes a wide range of activities and programmes in community centres and on the streets of London.

SkyWay’s youth-led scheme provides education on life-skills, healthy eating, employment development, arts, music and sports sessions, plus one-to-one therapy.

SkyWay supports children like Lucy who lives in Hackney and spends time at one of the charity’s centres.

Lucy mentioned that she liked football and was encouraged to attend SkyWay’s football sessions regularly.

Through a combination of regular practice at the youth club and at school, Lucy took part in football trials and was recently chosen as a member of the Arsenal girl’s junior club.

Global’s Make Some Noise will fund the ‘SkyWay Futures’ scheme, which helps to improve opportunities for young people, by helping them to become positive role models and develop their social and emotional skills.
