The NASDC is a programme powered by the 2nd Chance Group, a social enterprise that employs its wealth of experience and entrepreneurial culture to develop bespoke, evidence-led solutions that use the power of sport to repair broken lives and build a stronger future for young people.
The NASDC is underpinned by a single belief – that the power of sport can be used to engage and support the most challenging and complex people in society.
Our vision – a just world, free from crime.
Our mission – we convene the best people and support the development of best practice, evidence and policy in using sport to tackle crime. We also provide a global platform to share learning, celebrate success and make the case for further investment.
Our strategic objective – to ensure every person at risk of offending has access to a sport for development intervention.
Our strategic aims (identified by our sector-wide Theory of Change)
- physical and mental wellbeing
- individual development
- education and training
- social and community development
- Courage – ‘be the change we want to see’
- Integrity – ‘the right thing, the right way’
- Excellence – ‘don’t be good, be great’
- Results – ‘we succeed when you do’
- Collaboration – ‘we are stronger together’
In 2015, we partnered with Comic Relief, Ministry of Justice, National Offender Management Service, Youth Justice Board and Clinks to launch the NASDC, and recruited the Rt. Hon. The Lord McNally as Ambassador.
