Synthesis of the case study

Chance to Shine' is a national charity with a mission to spread the power of cricket in schools and communities. It brings cricket to thousands of young people in inner city areas and using the game to increase aspiration, promote social cohesion and create opportunities in a diverse communities affected by youth crime and anti-social behaviour. Since 2005 the Chance to Shine Schools programme has helped to reverse the decline of cricket in state schools. Working in close partnership with all 39 County Cricket Boards and hundreds of local cricket clubs, it counts up to three million boys and girls in over 11,000 schools playing and learning through cricket. They have also created a powerful bank of free resources for primary schools, so teachers can lead their own cricket sessions with confidence.
